November 2018

Incredibly busy this month. And exhausted. And freaking out because there are so many snakes. So I read lots and lots and lots of short stories late at night to try and help myself sleep...

October 2018

Fieldwork has been picking up, and I have been having anxiety issues. Which makes it more likely that I've been reading short stories - they are a quick and easy fix that make me calm down without disappearing into a book for the ENTIRE day...

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.

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.

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...)
