This week, I’m mostly pondering my feelings about what I’m going to do after this PhD. It’s a long way off, but I went to a careers event this week that sent my head into a bit of a spin.
So, more things were going to happen this week, but then they didn’t because of strikes. In both cases I support the strikes (London Underground and university staff) but I have less to write about than I planned. I did, however, go to an enlightening talk on imposter syndome and do/read a couple of interesting things, so I’ll blog about those.
I had a lot to do this week. I’m going to talk about that with a focus on a course I went on these past two days.
So. this week I started reading some child guidance manuals, in order to find out opinions on only children as well as why some of the characteristics attributed to them were so bad. So far I’ve made a little headway, but today I’m going to blog about something else that caught my attention but isn’t so much to do with my thesis but might be something I want to follow up in the future. It concerns acceptable and unacceptable ways to scare children.
When I’m not working on my PhD or messing around on Twitter and Tumblr, I’m reading for fun. Seems strange that after a day of battling with thick academic texts, I want to strain my eyes more, but what can I say, I’m a sucker for punishment. Recently, a few things I’ve read for fun have actually ended up inadvertently relating to my PhD.
