September 2018

September has been crazy for me. I have had my major review, I've been doing fieldwork. And I've had a few social things on. Basically, I have been feeling exhausted, slightly mental, and incredibly productive.

July 2018

I start my fieldwork next month (hopefully) which means that I have been spending a lot of time sorting out the things that I need for this. So I've found that I've read a lot of novellas, and easier tales this month. They're a great, short way to distract myself. If I get too hooked into a full novel, well, then I seem to struggle to actually put the books down...

June 2018

This month I have been writing my first paper / literature review for my PhD. I have written my research proposal (somehow scarier than anything I've ever done before) and just in general felt overwhelmed and stressed. Which tends to mean I read a little more than usual... so it was kind of good, and kind of not so good...

May 2018

I seem to have had a month of headaches and migraines this month. I still managed to read, but it certainly wasn't as enjoyable as it has been in the past...

April 2018

April started off rocky - I was working a lot and trying to also make great progress on my PhD. For starters, the month started with a long weekend and one of my work mates being sick... But, luckily, I quickly found my flow and managed to get myself back on track.

March 2018

I started my PhD this month. It's been a pretty intense and overwhelming period. But, also one of the most exciting and surreal experiences that I've looked forward to for a long time!

January 2018

This has been a great start to the year. I said goodbye to some of the series I loved (by finishing them). Got accepted into a PhD and just generally started the new year with a bang (and, surprisingly, no hangover...)

December 2017

Christmas is about working way too much, reading every moment I get and missing my family. This is the second Christmas that I haven't been with them, and the first time that I've been in the same country as them... It's been nice though, lots of money, lots of free time, which basically for me just means lots more books.

November 2017

This month has been incredibly reflective and weird. I feel like everything is changing and I've been reexamining what I want to do with my life. It's definitely been, as I said... interesting. I also finished my Masters of Writing which was kind of amazing!
