Stopping for today at 14,538/15,000 …with a teeny bit still to add tomorrow.

Rather hoping my supervisors won’t ask me to add in more at the meeting next week… :p

The Great British Bake Off: a summary

(via ilovebritishtv)

I don’t know what it is about going out for an hour to do some food shopping that puts me off getting back to work, but if nothing else it reaffirms my theory that I shouldn’t leave the house close to deadlines…

Sorry to be mushy, but I have a bloody spectacular boyfriend.
Today I’ve cried about three times, convinced myself I’m going to fail the confirmation assessment in October (meaning I’ll get sacked), and talked about just quitting the PhD and finding something else to do because I’m obviously not good enough.
Sam not only calmed me down and got me to stop talking about quitting, but sat with me and talked me through all aspects of my first year report (on which I’m being assessed this year) until I came up with a new direction that I felt happier with.
Plus he cooks ace food and isn’t bad to look at.
Seriously, I’m a lucky girl.
</mushiness>

I’ve finally done something with the random snippets of video I got in the Lake District last month.

Namely: pile them all together and slap some Ulver over the top. :p

transcendingthevoid said: I start mine in a few weeks and am admittedly feeling nervous about not being good enough. Hopefully it should be ok!

I’m sure you’ll be great :D

transcendingthevoid said: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Im… is apparently something common with phd students. Keep at it I’m sure you’ll be fine :)

Sam had a look at that link and said: “Yep. That’s it. That sounds exactly like what’s happening.”  So I think you might be on to something :)

Thank you! :)

Rotherham made the front page of the BBC website and BBC News website. And it’s for a fucking horrible reason.

This is a glorious metaphor for how my working weekend was planned vs how it went.

Things are calmer. I’m slightly less hysterical/convinced I’m going to lose my job now.

Looking forward to taking the day off tomorrow before getting back to the grind on Wednesday.

This has been a post.

Panic stations.

Gah.

At this rate, I’m not going to be able to go to my own flat-warming…

You go, Prof Munthe
