Football match and progress with my dissertation

After my worries the last couple of weeks about my dissertation I have finally made some progress and even sorted out conducting my primary research, which I am over the moon about. I will be conducting my research over the Christmas break when I return home. Although this mean I’ll have to get on with some serious work over Christmas it means that I can get my research done nice and early and have plenty of time to analyse and conclude my research and time to work on my dissertation before the submission day, fingers crossed all goes to plan and I receive some good results from my research.
Also, our event is also coming together nicely. Finally getting there with confirming our venue, and also date of the event.  We’ve got a name and confirming several of the elements of the event; it’s all starting to become a little bit more real now.
My other piece of coursework which is due this month turned out to be a bit of a disaster. After starting the essay over a month early I thought I was doing pretty well on it. But after having a one to one meeting with my tutor to discuss any problems or questions I discovered that I was a bit off the mark with my content. But luckily I hadn’t gone completely wrong and just needed to re-jig and be more specific with my content to get me back on track, so all was not lost. A big recommendation I would make to any one is really do ask your tutors if you’re not sure, if I hadn’t for example it would have really affected my grade. But by asking early I have now been able to re-jig the assignment and get back on track, with 3 weeks left till I need to submit.
As the title of the blog suggests I have been to a football match, the first one I’ve ever been to. Now I may hear you cry…football really you’ve never expressed an interest before. Well you would be correct; I didn’t go for fun I went as part of one of my assignments in the Sporting Events module. I went to see the Charlton Athletic verses Cardiff City game which turned out to be a 5-4 result to Charlton. So it was a pretty exciting match to be sitting with the home fans. I have to admit although I am not the biggest football fan I did enjoy myself and really enjoyed the atmosphere of the game. The only thing I would change would be the temperature, five layers and 2 pairs of socks and I was still freezing.

    How’s the progress with your dissertation going, Cristy? Well, it was certainly a good idea to manage time properly. That way, you can organize the dissertation paper properly, and it would certainly help to balance your work and life. Anyway, I hope all are going according to your plan.
