Before starting to write my report, I thought that the activation energy required to simply begin writing the report would be far greater than the energy required to write the report itself and once I started it would be an easy roll down the mountain. I was completely wrong. It was an uphill battle every moment up until the point of submission.
Make no mistake, I was fully prepared for the momentous amount of work that would have to go into the report, but what I was not prepared for was having a quite drastic life-changing event the Friday before the report was due. My study space and environment was totally turned upside down and I struggled to find a place to work where I could focus and be productive without a gloomy cloud lingering over me. And so the battle became even worse, where not only was I climbing a huge mountain but I was going uphill with chains around my ankles.
