Hi Internet, place where all things go and stay forever,
It’s the 2nd of November of 2016, I had a meeting with my supervisors and life sucks.
Ok, fair warning: I am a PhD student but (hopefully) this will not be a blog (exclusively) about how dreadful life in academia is. I mean, it might be some days because that’s my life right now (and will be for three more years, give or take) but there are cool things happening too, I promise!
So why a blog? And why today? Well, why not? I realised that I actually enjoy writing but all of this academic writing has got me going bananas. Especially today. I needed something else today. So, given that I follow a couple of lifestyle blogs and quite like them, along with some funny youtubers, I thought I’d make my own thing and see what comes out of it. I don’t really know what type of content I’ll be posting, or how frequently I’ll be signing in, but we’ll figure it out together, Internet.
If Google or WhatsApp or Facebook or Twitter (or any other form of social media that keeps track of us mortals) didn’t tell you yet, I’m currently in the UK, where my University is (nop, not in London). Actually it only took me 14 hours of flights, trains and buses to get here, so that’s fun. Speaking of fun, can we all acknowledge the pun on the blog title, please? Thisisnotfunny = Thisis not funny = Thesis not funny… Got it? I’m a funny person. You’ll see, Internet, you’ll see.
