A lot has happened since I last checked in here. Two chapters of my undergrad dissertation (so, excluding the one I didn't like all that much haha) have been accepted for publication. I might possibly be presenting at a conference soon. Everything is happening at once and it's terrifying but so exciting and it's like, -good- stress, if that makes any sense.

Hello! So I'm just about to start my MA, and I'm making a pre-PhD 'bucket list' of activities that would help me get some good experience/field knowledge under my belt before I start applying for doctoral funding. E.g. I've written that I'd like to get a second article written and submitted for publication, go to some relevant conferences and maybe shadow or interview someone in a similar specialism. Are there any other activities that might not be so obvious? (Oh and I'm a literature student!)

so, good news. i'm graduating next month with a first-class BA with honours. i have been granted a scholarship to fund my master's. i feel more sure than ever that going down this route is the right way for me. and having started my degree journey so uncertain and so frightened, that means a lot! i feel so driven to learn more and to make the absolute best of this next degree - while still taking care of -myself-, which is something i have absolutely neglected during my undergrad studies.

it also feels so good to take everything you've read and to kind of. synthesise it into a story??? something that puts it all into a broader context. it's like you're weaving a spider web

i love writing a good introduction. it helps to ground me. i like that it feels like there's no commitment. you can just serve up hot takes and pull the evidence together later.

introduced a tutor to the phrase 'hot take' and have just started annotating awkward phrasing in this paper with 'oof.' my fledgling academic career is an actual meme
