update to previous entry

My interruption was approved :-) Much relief from time pressure. Still working toward goal of submitting thesis on 31 Aug 2011, but now it's not SO crucial if I take a few more months to solidify my argument and tighten writing in chapters. I recently attended a workshop at my university called "The Viva", which was extraordinarily helpful with preparing me for what I may be faced with in my viva. It helped me be a bit more confident in my work, and also opened my eyes to exactly how specific and in what style my writing and overall thesis needs to be, or is expected to be. I would highly recommend this type of workshop or seminar for anyone in their third or later year of their PhD.
