I'm a new Masters by Research student (been going about 2 months). I have my research topic chosen and am currently working on editing my research proposal. Apart from that I have nothing to do but read papers which doesn't take up a lot of my time? Did anyone else feel like it was a slow start for them? I feel like I should be doing something!
Haha. I remember feeling this way for the first six months of PhD. Don't worry - you'll get busy soon! That said, you can be smart about how you use this time. Make sure your work is structured: you can map out the issues/conversations in your field that you need to be familiar with and write up good notes on the relevant papers you read; brush up your methodological competence; this might be a good time to look for some early teaching opportunities - perhaps you can give a guest lecture somewhere?
Yeah,I felt the same to when I was starting out. I did a course to be a personal support worker http://www.cestarcollege.com/courses/health-care/personal-support-worker/ in cestar college.You will get busy later on just make sure that you use your free time properly so that you could include it into your CV later on.
