Hey everyone, how are you?
Yesterday I managed to make some progress on the non-fiction article, but need to focus now on the PhD application.
It was good yesterday to get up early and to make some progress on the non-fiction article that a friend and I are writing. But today I really need to get the PhD application started and email potential supervisors and work on the proposal. It seems like a lot to get done in a day, but the deadline is next weekand and as much as I usually put things off to last minute I need to plan this better so that I don’t get stressed this time next week. I have a vague idea of what I would like to study for my PhD. I just need to refine it to the university I am applying for standards. And I need to think about how this will be an original piece of research. Another way in that I cannot leave it until last minute is because I may need to email potential supervisors. And I’ve left that kind of late already so I need to get on top of it.
I am pumped to be doing a PhD application, I was wondering how many there would be this year, given the lack of funding due to the pandemic. So I need to take each opportunity as it arrives and apply to this university. The University I’m applying to is one I’ve not been to you before and it is a train journey away so I will be commuting. But I have done that before, so I know that I can do it again. I don’t know if I could live in London again, I think I could not handle the pace of it. But I am lucky that where I live now I can commute quite easily to London. I have in past years applied to local universities but I was not successful.
As well as the PhD application, I also have a couple of meetings and some fiction writing to do. However, I am not going to have a really early start like I did yesterday. As it just tired me out by early afternoon. And I had to stop and rest and that not me out for the rest of the day. Which meant that I didn’t get as much done as I would’ve liked. So the fiction writing is carried over from yesterday. I want to ensure that I finish the current chapter of the short story. This is so it can be uploaded next week. So it is going to be another busy day but it does leave the weekend free if I get everything done. And that is how I like to do things.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
