So it’s been a busy few months. I started a new job at the end of February, and I’ve been spending much of my spare time working on my funding application for uni.
The good news is that my efforts have finally paid off, and I will be starting a “new life” as a student again from 1 October, when I will be moving up to Lancaster to start a PhD in English.
I cannot stress just how much I’m looking forward to this. It’s been a long time coming, and has taken an awful lot of work to get me to the point where I can finally return to university and study the subject that I love.
New start, new blog
With my new start from October, I will return to the blogosphere, charting my PhD progress, and writing about subjects related to my areas of study. I’m particularly interested in the ways in which life is shaped as a discursive construct across the media, and the ways we deal with matters of life and death. I’ve already got a number of pieces planned – so look out for more blogs from October!
