My bachelor thesis VIII: Thesis defense in academia day two

My Bachelor Thesis VI: page-count trouble

Time to get serious again. As I mentioned earlier, the thesis is quite long. We (me and Cecilia) had to keep it within 10-15 pages long, something we thought that we had accomplished. This was until earlier this morning when I read through the instructions again. Surprise! Apparently table of contents, abbreviation list and the […]

Friday night out, warm outside - Lady in red

So the party we went to, (for pre-drinks, more of a casual thing) was entertaining. Daniel’s classmates are awesome and we had a blast. We just drank some good wine and beer and talked shit for several hours. A perfect way to spend a Friday night if you ask me! I hadn’t planned on going […]

My Bachelor Thesis V: EndNote you are not my friend!

Our draft was put together yesterday after nearly 12 hours of non-stop work and after struggling with the darn reference program EndNote. My question is this, how are we supposed to know how to insert manual references in the program if we haven’t been taught the program, nobody can help us- or the manual doesn’t […]

My Bachelor thesis III: Week four starts of good

By putting in a tremendous amount of work we managed to get up-to-date by last Friday. We analyzed our five studies, wrote the method part of the thesis and prepared for the Monday session with our professor. We had taken some drastic conclusions and were worried what she would say, as we had come to […]

My bachelor thesis II : A tricky research question

Halfway through the third week and we are already having problems. Our research question on weight cycling and blood pressure has turned out to be a little problematic, as there is a limited amount of human studies on the subject and few of the ones we found met our criteria’s. Yesterday we discovered that we […]

Passed Clinical Nutrition II, bachelor thesis and 6 weeks at the hospital left before graduation

Right now I am enjoying a double latte at the Mona Lisa restaurant in Oslo, relaxing while my five hours of transit time is passing. I have been visiting my parents in Norway, probably the last time before the summer unless I get a Friday off from school again. While having my very strong coffee […]
