The Confessions Of Facing The Future...

I have reached that point in University that all students dread - choosing your Dissertation topic.
A dissertation is a form of torture University officials inflict on poor third year students. It's like The Hunger Games of assignments.

Okay I'm exaggerating slightly. It is however a 10,000 word research project conducted by the student on any topic of their choice. Now as I have spent the past year studying Popular Culture and have had a lot of focus on Social Media, I have chosen this as my research topic. Also I pretty much spend my life on Twitter so it feels appropriate. I live and breathe Social Media so I figured why not do something I'm passionate about!

When I suggest this to my mum I know her response will be 'Is this just so you can sit on Twitter for the next year?!'. Woman knows me well.

I am however struggling for direction with my chosen topic due to needing to conduct a research question. I have so many areas that I can flow into from online music scenes, celebrity identity to the ordinary building an online audience!

Where does one begin?!

It's a good job I don't run this country with my poor decision skills. I can barely decide what to eat for breakfast in the morning. How am I going to decide where to go with my dissertation?!

If you think you have anything to inspire me then please step into the spotlight! I may even end up featuring you in my dissertation! Whether it's words of wisdom, your experiences with Social Media, providing me with blogs to read or even the Glipho teams experience of creating a social network! All of this is so useful in guiding my path for my third year assignment.... that's if I even qualify for third year....

Make this the first 'panic about my dissertation' blog post of many to come over the next 12 months.
