I Want to Finish my MLIS ASAP

Currently, I enrolled 3 units of my Graduate Studies program (Master in Library and Information Science) for Summer 2017. I am allowed to take 6 units for Summer 2017 but because of the other subjects available is conflict to my current schedule, I forced myself not to enroll that subject. I started my MLIS program from 1st Semester of School Year 2012-2013 with 9 units enrolled, then not to enroll on the next semesters until I decided to enroll again in the 2nd Semester of School Year 2016-2017 with 9 units enrolled. If you are going to add those 2 semesters, I already finished 18 units out of 36 academic units excluding the current Summer 2017. In view of this, I should enroll 6 units now for Summer 2017 to reach 24 units plus another 6 units in the second Summer 2017 on June-July 2017 for the transition to reach 30 units. And my final 6 academic units will enroll on August 2017. And by September 2017, my comprehensive examination. And on January 2018, I will start my Master's Thesis. The University is only required me to finish the MLIS Degree on May 2018 including the thesis because of 5 years residency. That will be a hectic schedule for me. To write the thesis for only 5 months. That's horrible.

That is a tough schedule to follow. Start writing your thesis NOW! I know you may not have much to say at the minute but you could certainly start on your literature review. I kept a "research journal" of papers I read, thoughts I had, etc and found it VERY useful to go through that to pick out bits to use. The research journal had a note at the top "NOT FOR PUBLICATION". That helped me to jot down notes and thoughts and not have to worry about them being "perfect", so I got something written.
