How To Manage Writing A Thesis While Working Full Time
So you have been able to go to school full time and work full time amazingly. It wasn’t easy and you spent a lot of mornings half asleep while driving to work and taking short naps on your lunch break. But now you have a thesis due and it is probably the hardest and most complex paper that you have been asked to write to date. You will need to find a way to write this very time consuming paper, still attend classes, and work full time.
Just remember that it can be done. Many students have done it before you and you have accomplished so much already. There are a few things that you can do to successfully accomplish this huge and important goal without getting admitted in the process.
- Create milestones
- Create a concrete schedule
- Work on it continuously
- Get someone to read through the rough draft
Break the task up into sections. It can be as easy as first deciding on a tentative topic, proposing the topic, and then working on each section of the paper.
You need to create a concrete schedule that you follow faithfully. You want to make sure that you give yourself some time to proofread and edit as well. Make sure that you make it realistic in regards to how much time that you will be able to commit to it.
You should set aside a few hours a day to work on the project. You can give yourself a few days break here and there but make sure that you don’t take too much time off. Playing catch up is not fun and may not be feasible. If you get too far behind, you will put yourself in a bad place.
Get a second set of eyes to look it over even if you have to hire a professional freelance writer to help you. You should utilize someone else’s opinion to perfect your paper because they will be able to let you know if they get lost. It is possible if they get lost, someone else will too.
This is an important paper and you can get it done even while working full time but you have to set goals and make sure that you hit them. That way you can really make the best use of your time.
