So, my thesis sucks.

And I was okay with that. I mean, it was done, right? That was all that mattered. It never occurred to me that people would actually read it. No, not real people. Just my thesis adviser and my second reader. But still, it's embarrassing. I like to think I could've done better if I'd cared more, if I'd tried more, if I'd put more effort into it. But maybe I couldn't. Maybe I just always procrastinate and then turn in stuff I'm not happy with so I never have to face the fact that I'm not satisfied with my writing. I can always blame the bad stuff on procrastination, not lack of talent. Clever little cognitive protection I've got going there.

Indeed. I also found this by googling "my thesis sucks". I have the same problem -- I procrastinate for so long that I just have to scramble and turn in anything that is even remotely complete. I'm sure I can do better, but I never find out because I do everything at the last minute. :(

How did the thesis go? Well, it would really be great to give your all if you are writing a thesis paper. For some people it can be the product of what they learn on all of their studies. Maybe, if you ever get a chance to write a thesis or dissertation again, it would be good to give your all so that you won’t have any regrets in the future.

You shouldn’t be embarrassed about your thesis, Jennifer! Just look at all your hard work and effort you gave into just to finish it. I you feel that your thesis is incomplete, you should try to get some thesis help from other people. That way, they can give one or two advice for you.
