Freedom Feels Weird

It’s been a couple of weeks now since I finished my dissertation, and thus, finished my degree. In fact, despite the gentle jokes, and more serious implications of expanding on my Master’s research, that I should go on to do a doctorate, I am finished with education. After four years, I think it’s only fair … Continue reading Freedom Feels Weird

Spoons, Priorities, and Blogging

When I did my undergraduate degree at Reading, I specifically picked accommodation that was not on campus, but not too far from it either. I couldn't face being enclosed in a campus, and it had been my initial wish to join a city university (instead of trying to convince us that you pick the wedding … Continue reading Spoons, Priorities, and Blogging
