Hello bloggy world. I've been missing in action of late, but I've caught up on all your lovely posts! I'll have some more posts going up soon, but for now here's a brief update:
I've been travelling round the country! Sounds very fancy and extravagant, but actually I've been visiting Universities that I have applied to do a PhD with. As I mentioned before, it can be pretty pricey to get the train from the deep reaches of Cornwall over the border and up into “the North” (Devon and beyond!) I've spent about £150 so far, but it's been worth it to meet people I would potentially be working with, have interviews, make contacts, have a nose at various people's research. That kind of thing. I've come away with some very positive feedback and I'm quite confident that all will fall into place for me to return to Uni this year. :) SO EXCITING!
I've had the last of my travellings for a couple of weeks at least, so it's back to the grind! Actually, I've been working pretty much all the days I've not been travelling and used holiday pay for the days I was away, so luckily I've not lost any hours/wages!
I haaate interviews! Even when I know my stuff I always think I sound daft! Anyone have any advice? I go bright red too! :D
