My Thesis Stats

Well, after delivering the report and the summaries, and almost everything I should deliver for now, I feel much more relaxed. =)

As I said in my last post here come the stats of my thesis, it's just numbers and are not a measure of quality, but it is nice nevertheless.

Number of Pages: 114
Number of Words: 35178
Number of Chapters: 8
Number of Images: 22
Number of Tables : 4
Number of References: 141


Next I'll be doing my presentation, which will take place on the 17th of July in Porto.

2- Write Abstract
3- Write Abstract in Portuguese
4- Write 2 pages abstract

Progress "bar" - Saturday 27 of June

Two days to go! I am getting a bit nervous and am a bit afraid of the delivery date!! Nevertheless there is not enough time to freak out. I have to write as much as I can and as fast as I can. I think I'll manage to finish it properly, but I'm wish I would have more time to revise it. My goal today is to finish the chapters that I still haven't finished, which means one and a half chapter to do today.

Yesterday I wrote a few pages, but also wrote the Acknowledgements, did some introductions and summary of some chapters, things that I was saving for later but I decided to do when I was not being too productive in other chapters.

And I still only have one picture on the document, that will take some time also... need to rush!

Friday: Wrote 3 pages plus extras, stopped at 53 pages. Had 25k words! =)

Progress "bar" - Friday 26 of June

Here I am again. Time is running short and there are still some pages to write. Nevertheless I think I'll manage it, just not as relaxed as I would like.

Yesterday "the writings" were not bad, but I should be faster. Let's see how does it go today!

Thursday: 5 pages written. Stopped at 50.

PS: Michael Jackson is dead... let him Rest In Peace.
