PRECIOUS BABY

IT’S FINALLY ARRIVED!! I was a bit lazy and hadn’t gotten around to printing my Thesis yet. It’s no longer done by the University itself as everything is now done online, so if you want a hard copy, you have to do it all yourself. First you gotta pick the […]

On a more positive note

Life is full of ups and downs. So naturally, if I write about the downsides of Academia and research, there’s also plenty of positives- it’s just that sometimes they’re a little more subtle and harder to find, or maybe it’s just easier to focus on the negatives. At the moment, […]

Thesis results be like

A little over a month ago, I wrote a post about how I was very patiently (😂) waiting for the results of my Ph. D Thesis examination. I’ve written briefly about the submission and examination process before, but essentially I’d been waiting to hear back for almost four months at […]
