MSc worries

In need of inspiration. Trying to get my arse in gear wrt MSc, but still have not the foggiest what I want to do. Mail project co-ordinator and ask if it's possible to have some examples, to give me a clue what to do. They ask what area I'm looking to work in, I say I don't know yet and was hoping examples would inspire me, response: "We expect students to meet us halfway: please define a subject area and we can move forward". Thankyou *so* much. That really really helps.

And they seem happy to ignore the fact they've been completely forgetting I exist. I only officially deferred my course until the beginning of February and no-one has contacted me since then. And they haven't answered my other question, which was to ask if it's possible to defer any further or if September is my last possible deadline to get this degree.

I don't know if I can do this right now, but I feel like I have to.

Update: Phew. Apparently they were assuming since I didn't contact them in Feb that I wanted to continue intermitting. Dunno why they didn't *ask* but there we go. I can apparently re-register in September and start a project then, hand in in March and graduate next year. It makes it an awfully long way off before I actually get a degree, but at least I would get one, which I might not if I tried to struggle my way on at the moment. I'm not going to just let myself forget about it completely until then though. I've asked again if they can just manage a list of past project titles, so we'll see what goes from there. Thanks for the support guys.
