I just realised I’ll be able to have Five Guys and In-N-Out on my next trip to the States! Life = Complete.
Doing a PhD is a very lonely pursuit.

Things that have made me smile today:
The builders next door are singing along to Manic Monday by The Bangles.
I just made a new blog.
I'm in my room.
Listening to Sigur Rós really loudly because I’m in a weird mood and I might go to uni in a bit even though it’s Sunday because I have nothing better to do and most of my friends have embarked on long holidays so I’m going to be bored for the next month and I can’t leave my room until my iPod has decided if it’s going to give up the ghost or not despite my best...

I'm now about to embark on a trip up Manchester,...
I’m not giving a paper, but I am shitting myself. I think it’s going to be super interesting and there are some really great Feminists speaking and the focus on methods is perfect for me. The university could only afford one night in the Business School so I’ll be in a hostel tonight and then making my way down for the start of the conference tomorrow. I hate networking, I hope I...

erichalvorsen These literally made my jaw drop.
I just enrolled on a Spanish language course.
Intermediate level. I haven’t studied Spanish since I did it at GCSE level. I love learning languages, yet I only know little bits of lots and not a lot of most.
