blind panic

I feel totally overwhelmed by my dissertation, I can't keep all my thoughts straight in my head, my research questions keep changing, I have no idea how to organise it, it's all fragmented and I don't think I can put all the pieces back together again in a coherent order, and I still have 7000 more words to write in the next three weeks. Only I know it's going to be way too long because my first analysis chapter is about twice the length it should be. Oh fuck, I hate this!


Am going to talk to the ducks. I think they might be able to help.

    You should acquire a male duck, and submit that as a grand statement on the fundamental viscidity of gender analysis. As a seasonally emasculated/androgenous creature the boy/girl duck would show the hard–eyed examiner that you have engaged with his/her subject deeply. There's also a hint of cross–disciplinarity to it (they like that).

    It could, of course, backfire in a flurry of shed feathers, involuntary fecal evacuation and a pecked nose.

    Not you in your pink outfit and hen–night headwear, obviously.

    You're right, I shall embrace Kylie and all that is pink and sparkly for the duration of the non–mating season (i.e. while I'm not getting any). I'm not sure I'm up to close critical scrutiny from any 'hard–eyed examiners' though. I fear such carryings–on could irrevocably scar my inner drake with the result that I'm only good for the hoisin sauce.

    Becalm yourself… Making an excellent meal is an exalted end – but not a meal for the examiners though. They deserve a sound thrashing and a bowl of gruel for their dogmatic tyranny.

    I'll accept the challenge posed to my masculinity, but I'm afraid I have an absolutist ontology that does not include pancakes or getting wrapped up in one.

    Tish and bibble. There's little amiss with ending up as a mouth–watering meal. I suggest that you loosen your ontological girdle and drink a pot with the unwashed.

    You have lots of material, a rigorous approach to research and lots to say about both.
