Everything went wrong in this thesis:
- the foundation was wrong (another persons work turned out to be not reliable)
- my professor had no idea of the workload the experiment would result in
- my defense was deferred
And I finished it! Granted, I still wait for my marks. And I'm unemployed now, looking for an PhD position. But this new challenge of job search will hopefully not be as long and draining as fighting against windmills and my thesis.
