Diary of a Postgrad Student – Week 1 done

Practicum? Sorted! Signed up and started. Dissertation? Rejections from 4 supervisors so far. Still waiting on a response from my preferred supervisor. Ok well it’s technically week 2 on the timetable, but it’s week 1 of ‘normal’ lectures. Don’t worry about keeping up. I’m confused as hell! What is not as confusing is the lectures. It has been a pleasure to start actually learning stuff, rather than...

On Tuesday (Day 2) I had arranged to do a talk in Broughty Ferry at 7pm. It was a gorgeous evening, and The Ferry (as it’s usually called) is a little fishing village right on the sea. It has a golden sand beach and even has lifeguards in the summer.  Definitely worth popping over when you have a bit...

Dissertations!

Hey everyone! Long time no blog, as I have been in somewhat of a dissertation-induced hibernation (i.e. only leaving my laptop to go to work and then straight back home again). This dissertation has been my baby for the past year and now it has finally flown the nest! Yay! I have now completed the entirety of my four year English degree at Dundee.  That’s it.  Done.  Just like that.  So here’s a celebratory pic of me...
