Master’s Thesis – Feelings of the Post-Hand-in Self

Reading time: 1 minute

My brain has still not realised it, but I have actually handed-in my  master’s thesis 1 day and 8 hours before the deadline. So, what are the feelings of my post-hand-in self (thanks Sarolta for the inspiration for this term)?

Exhaustion

= a feeling of being extremely tired and without energy

“I am somewhat exhausted; I wonder how a battery feels when it pours electricity into a non-conductor?”
Arthur Conan Doyle , The Adventure of the Dying Detective

Relief

= a relaxed happy feeling that you get because something bad has not happened or a bad situation has ended

“Every stress leaves an indelible scar, and the organism pays for its survival after a stressful situation by becoming a little older”.
― Hans Selye

Happiness

Dalai Lama XIV

Determination

= the refusal to let anything prevent you from doing what you have decided to do

“Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Curiosity

= a strong feeling of wanting to find out about something

“Curiosity is, in great and generous minds, the first passion and the last.”
