Back in the house

So I’m back from holiday. I wrote a lot while I was away, but that is a mission unto itself, compiling, editing and throwing a few photos in.

In the meantime, I was rejected for my scholarship. I knew it would happen. Still hurt.

So I’ve started looking at other options for funding. I also have a conference to deliver at and a potential year away in Belgium for study – both of which require funding, so it’s time for me to start looking now.

I read an interesting blog about living through a PhD that had something about the Four Hour Work Week which looks pretty cool. It also gave me a few ideas about how to link my new-found love of travel with my increasing love of research.

Needless to say this sounds right up my alley, but I’m tired and I have some reading to do (professional and pleasurable alike.) so off to the couch. Sure it sounds like I’m being lazy, but I have a bunch of windows open with grants, timetables and other potential funding sources open to digest over a few days, and a book that is due back in about three..

So much catching up to do and getting ahead to attempt, but its nice to be back in the house.
