I'm graduating from my masters program this spring (yay!). I've finished my written comprehensive exams and I'll do my orals in two weeks, which I'm not too worried about. The only class I have this semester is a directed study which is moving along pretty well. I specifically only took one class this semester so that I would have time to work on my thesis.
In December I e-mailed my thesis adviser the first three chapters of it. She didn't get back to me with edits until two weeks ago, and that was only on chapters one and two. And two weeks ago is when she first picked up to read it. I know that because when I went to her office to pick up the edits at the time she said she would have them done, she had just started. She was supposed to give me her edits for chapter 3 before I left for spring break. But of course she didn't. She hasn't even looked at my revision that took into account the edits she did give me. I had to re-send them to her because she lost it. And I still don't have edits for chapter 3, which I've now asked for 3 times.
Before I can move on from these first chapters I have to have a meeting with everyone on my thesis committee. But I can only do that once my adviser gives me the green light. But of course she won't look at any of work! I'm so frustrated and stressed. I've essentially done nothing on my thesis since December because she refuses to make this any sort of priority. I've already had to push back the deadline for my thesis which means I won't get my diploma in the spring, I'll get it in the summer (but I can still walk May).
I'm not a very confrontational person but I feel like I have to say something. Because despite the fact that I've sent her e-mails asking for drafts and e-mails discussing my timeline for finishing this project she still doesn't seem to get that she is holding up the entire process. So I guess what I'm asking is what's an appropriate yet still forceful way to say "I need you to fucking get it together because this is absolutely fucking ridiculous" Honestly, I wish she just would've said no to being my adviser if she didn't want to do it because then I could've asked someone else but now I can't and I'm screwed. I'm honestly considering just throwing out everything I've done and switching to a non-thesis option (which I have enough credits to do). It would suck because I'm actually incredibly passionate about my thesis but she's made it so much more stressful than it needs to be and I've started to hate even thinking about it.
