It has to be a good sign when your first read of the year gets five stars, right?
What better way to start a new blog than with a round-up of the books I loved in 2018 and the ones I'm looking forward to in 2019?
Anyone can now read my thesis online. I think this means I’m technically a doctor now, but I’m not going to fully believe it until I receive the letter that says so.

It's done. Again. For now.
Today, it’s a year since I had the viva that turned everything I thought I knew on its head and threw my post-PhD plans into the air.
It’s funny, I thought I’d take so long to decide whether to carry on with my PhD that the decision would be made for me...
There has basically been no progress since my last post. I started restructuring my thesis two months ago and promptly stopped for four reasons.
I have conquered the reading list. I have read all the relevant parts of all the books and articles I was told to read in order to succeed at this godforsaken PhD. Unfortunately, that means I have to move on to the editing and writing, which I’m emphatically NOT looking forward to.
Alas, things are not a lot better now.
