Hand in tomorrow! There is no other way to put it. You can't be subtle in these matters and after spending all week feeling like I am top of things, I suddenly find that an email from my tutor stating a fact that I knew anyway, has sent my head into a flat spin.
If you have a work ethic like mine, you will understand that there is always more to do and you always feel like you haven't done enough. Should I have stayed up an extra hour to work on that film edit? Should I have written another evaluative paragraph? Should I? Should I?
Sadly the answer is probably, but you have to draw the line somewhere. The email from my very supportive tutor only outlines when and where we are supposed to hand in our work but you start to doubt that you have done everything and it is all ready to go.
In actual fact, tomorrow is the hand in for our degree show piece, and as mine is to be The Archive, it was complete a while ago. We still have two weeks of being able to edit our supporting work and I have plenty to do as far as that is concerned as I keep thinking of elements I could add to the information which backs up the last 6 months' work.
I think it is simply because I have spent the last four years of my life, devoted to studying. This degree was such a dream of mine and I have the finishing post in sight, which you might assume would be an enormous relief but contrary to what I expected, it is now very daunting. The end of a very big chapter and I want to give it my all, right to the conclusion.
I will keep you posted on the setting up of the degree show and obviously right up to the end, but keep your fingers crossed folks and stick with me...
