Well I have finally admitted to myself that I will not finish my masters. Yes, yes, I know – put the rolling pin down mother and let me explain.
The problem is I am very interested in learning things, but not so interested in the whole getting-the-paper part. During my one-year return to school I learned about alternative energy, steam engines, gas turbines, solar power and all manner of energy production (or, more properly, conversion). I also learned that Thursday in Sweden means pea soup, and that Finland is not a country in which to buy fruit.
I also met a group of very nice people from all over the world. And, honestly, sitting writing a bunch of stuff on a rather boring topic just to get my letters does not really appeal to me. Life’s too short and I’m interested in other stuff now. I don’t really think I will work in this area, or do any research, and, with a shiny new job starting up next month, I don’t have any financial incentive to do so.
So I will finally put my poor old thesis to rest. For the moment, at least. And now the fate of all those oil well geothermal systems will never be known.
And I will go quietly and join the swelling ranks of those who have put their theses on hold (you know who you are) and will get back to them one day, oh yes they will, one fine day.
