It’s been a week with things to make me smile (see, it’s not all histrionics). I finished the first draft of assignment number 3. I’m feeling ok about having to spend my summer holiday working on assignment number 4 (see previous posts for why I am having to work so …

“Doing” a Doctorate – week 38

I’ve been on FIRE this week with my doctorate assignment writing! Well as on fire as I ever get with academic writing, and it’s almost as painful as actually being on fire (I’m really not a natural with this academic writing lark). Yes, I have actually been on fire – …

“Doing” a Doctorate – week 37

Really struggling this week, particularly with the question of why I am putting myself through the challenges of this doctorate! Really I am a person who should have done their doctorate full-time rather than trying to fit it in during my non-working time (previously known as spare time and holidays). …

“Doing” a Doctorate – week 34

“Doing” a Doctorate – week 21

While I am supposed to be working on my second assignment – Methods and Methodologies – I have instead done more baking than usual this week. It is seriously the best METHOD of procrastination ever – haha, see what I did there? I wonder if I could change my EdD …

“Doing” a Doctorate – week 20

Someone described this blog as the “Bridget Jones of Doctorates” – I’m (un)reasonably proud of that! Unfortunately (or fortunately for you, dear reader), I have nothing else to say this week because I have been too busy working to have time for anything else. Week 20: read week 19 by clicking …

“Doing” a Doctorate – week 19

Found a perfect pictorial example of what my week has been like. Or perhaps this is my attempt at trying out photo elicitation (What?! Shaddap!  I’m trying to learn how to speak like an actual doctoral student). Life, you’ve got to laugh in the very face of it….only not for …
