November was another fairly relaxed month! I did get out of the house more because I needed to do a lot of shopping, for Christmas and for my graduation which was brought forward by seven months. I also did another guest lecture and put together a monograph proposal. My research blog has disappeared because I… Continue reading #MonthlyWrapUp: November 2021
October has been a relaxed month! I didn’t really do much. In fact, the only things that I did were start my research blog and give a guest lecture on my PhD research. I hope November is slightly more eventful! The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole Vathek by William Beckford The Monk by Matthew… Continue reading #MonthlyWrapUp: October 2021

August was good. August was productive. August was probably the best month I’ve had so far in 2021. I spent the first half of the month preparing for my PhD viva. I had my viva on the 17th and I passed with minor corrections. I guess I have a PhD now. Or I’m super close… Continue reading #MonthlyWrapUp: August 2021

The title says it all, this is a quick post about me possibly starting a new blog. As I’ve been completing the final stages of my PhD, I’ve realised that I want to become an independent researcher and use a blog to share that research in an accessible way. I do have another free WordPress… Continue reading Starting a New Blog?

May has been a month. I’m due to submit my PhD thesis at some point today – which is terrifying – and I submitted another project yesterday so I have been doing a lot of academic work over the last month. Since I was working so much, blogging and reading took a back seat.… Continue reading #MonthlyWrapUp: May 2021
April was hectic for me! I almost started a new job but that didn’t work out in the way that I wanted it to and then I did start a new job but that job is technically a month-long project rather than an actual job. I finished all of the training for the second job… Continue reading #MonthlyWrapUp: April 2021
