Highlights of the week

Presenting a paper at a workshop in front of a bunch of doctoral students (probably my largest audience so far) and getting questions and comments rather than blank stares; the director of the doctoral programmes complimenting me personally on my approach and my ability to address specific audiences.


My abstract being accepted for ANOTHER conference – one more directly linked to my field – in September in Cambridge, also today.
Getting a very slim, very plain looking envelope in the mail, letting me know a foundation decided to fund my research trip to Venice this winter, on Tuesday (and a friend finding out he got a prestigious postdoctoral position for a great project, on the same day).


Bragging? Yeah. But I need a future reference for those days when I’d rather  be doing anything but a PhD!
