I’m a PhD student. I spend my days writing about 17th century poetry and working up articles for publication, which is a remarkably wonderful thing.
However, the countdown to submission has begun, and I’m aiming to submit my work for examination at the end of this year. This means I’ve gone from feeling like a carefree John Lennon at the beginning of his career, to the smacked-out John Lennon recording ‘Revolution’ on the floor of a recording studio. Stress is mounting, coffee is needed, and I feel a lot of pressure for my work to be stellar.
In terms of my blogging, this means that my posts may become less frequent, and perhaps more sporadic. If I go for long periods of time without posting, you’ll know why.
