One Hundred Thousand Words

I did some summing up yesterday. To get my MBA I have written about 100,000 words.

I’m reasonably adept at this whole “using my words” thing. I’m not bad at the summing thing either.

Which is why it is such a surprise that I have started no less than 6 blog posts trying to sum up how I feel about finishing my MBA.

I got. . .


But, I’m done.

Thought I should tell you that.

    Congratulations! You are awesome!!!

    I think I understand a little. Sometimes when I finish something that I’ve been working so hard toward, it can feel anticlimactic (even though I’m happy and proud to be done). And it is often hard for me to put a multi-faceted experience into words.

    But, heck yeah, congrats!!!!!

    And that is enough, right there, that you’re done. Congratulations!

    I need to draw some inspiration from you – I’m also normally quite good at the “using my words” thing (though not a patch on you), but I’m struggling with my thesis at the moment. So if you fancy writing another one…!

    By the way, to echo what Phoenix said, I had my first depressive episode right after finishing my first thesis (in another field) 15 years ago. I put it down to no longer feeling like I had something “important” to do 24/7 and no longer having distractions from the things in my life that weren’t going so well. It’s a rather extreme example, but I think the post-thesis anticlimax is a real thing. (Someone should write a thesis on it!)

    Anyway, congratulations again and hope you’ll be doing some celebrating.

    I felt fairly similar after finishing my MSc. I’d run out of brain temporarily.

    Congratulations! I think this is why they gave you lego the other day. It’s what keeps you busy till you go on to the next place.
