I’ve been a bad blogger and not written for ages. You might be thinking I’ve been celebrating but I have to break it to you: it isn’t handed in yet. Yep, I’m not so chuffed about it either. I’d been hoping to bask in a summer of glory and relief, my first in years but… Continue reading “The best laid plans…” and all that…
Inspired by this ‘prompt’ post at the Daily Touch on obsession and things getting stuck in our minds, made me think of my thesis (which I think easily demonstrates the obsession aspect!) I’m close to the end now, so not much else matters at the moment. I wake up having been ‘sleep editing’ certain paragraphs… Continue reading ‘End of the line?’ Obsessed to perfection.
On my computer I have a lovely folder titled ‘Chapters’ and within this folder is several sub-folders with each chapter title. Within each of these folders are several documents: my current ‘draft’ of the chapter and several documents of things to be ‘added in’ or notes from particular sources. Each chapter document also holds all… Continue reading It’s finally getting to the ‘really scary’ phase…
My final performance study has been keeping me pretty occupied for the last two months. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes before anyone even thinks about the stage side of it.

This article made me very cross as you can imagine! Lucy Williams in trying to share and disseminate her research more widely, found herself culprit of others plagiarising her material. At the very least one would hope the media outlets linked to these improper uses of someone else’s material, should make amends and rectify the author name given. My blog has remained largely detached and without too much detail about my research. I was always concerned about this, finding the balance between under and over sharing. This article re-iterates my concerns. Any comments? Let me know your thoughts below.
I had this feeling twice in the past week, although it is rare usually I assure you! The first crept up whilst presenting my first ever lecture to a group of 2nd year undergraduate students. I’ve run workshops and seminars before but, as this was a first, I had naturally spent far too much time… Continue reading Moments when you realise ‘you’ve learnt stuff’ (and can theorise on Dr Who!)
The lack of posting I am sad to say comes down to a very busy (PhD related) summer and the impending submission which looms ever closer as I now enter the ‘write-up’ phase of the PhD. I was lucky enough to be selected to attend two conferences to present papers this year. The first at… Continue reading Fall-ing into Winter from Summer
