I actually finished (a draft) of my thesis proposal. Now I have to set up the time line which feels awkward – how should I know if I form a clear picture of it? Especially regarding the empirical party of my study I sure have misconceptions because I have no clue how long this will take me. So after entering substantial content in the first couple of cells at my beautiful time line table all I can do now is add some vague “enter data”, “analyze data” and “finish writing process”. Three cells = three months? Looks very convincing to me.
