Gearing up for my PhD: Induction

I've been seriously neglecting my PhD posts so I'm going to do a speed catch up over the week, starting off with the official start date: 1st October 2018, Induction Day.

2018: A Year of Fun

Good grief if I don't press the Publish button now it is going to be 2020, I've already rewritten this about three times and it's not as if it is a work of literary genius. Looking back to this time last year I was reticent about doing a 2017 round up as it had been... Continue Reading →

Jumping into the #LTHEchat
