As I browse through my past blog posts, one sentence strikes me as particularly amusing (from the post ‘1 year doing a PhD – things are starting to happen!‘ )
“I’m close to submitting the 3rd…milestone…– it’s time for the pace to pick up!”
Well here I am 8 months later and it certainly doesn’t feel like any pace has picked up!
The Phd roller coaster ride
I like to think that the point at which I wrote that post I was teetering on the highest point of the roller coaster tracks, having trudged up the hill, slowly and laboriously, almost to the point of completing my research proposal. The view was amazing – data collection, research findings, publications and presentations were all on the horizon.
Then I submitted!
