3. move into an exciting city
3. learn greek
4. take up a few hobbies again i had to shut down during my phd

if i manage 4/5 i will be happy already :-)


1. Finish reserach
2. Write some chapters
3. Publish at least one paper
4. Go on holidays on a beautiful Greek island
5. Visit friends that I have left at the place I used to live and work 3 years ago (again on a very beautiful Greek island!!!!)


My goals:

1. submit thesis (spring time!)

3. have a nice relaxing break (short holiday will do)
4. start new job (already kind of lined up)

Oh Sue, may it indeed be a productive 2010! Yes, please.

Mine are:

1. Pass Mid-point progression (all the others depend on this!)
2. Publish a paper
3. Organize a conference
4. Go on a holiday/mini break
5. See friends more!

ETA: 6. SAVE SOME MONEY. Crucial for when I inevitably go over my 3 year time frame.


My things to do next year...

- UPGRADE! Has to be done by mid January... Everything else PhD related rather hangs on this!
- complete a draft of my two close-text chapters on themes and structure
- get married!
- successfully give my first non-postgrad paper
- get something published
- not quit my PhD in despair! :p


My goals:

FINISH! Submission July; Viva September/October; Graduation December.

Book proposal submitted to a University Press by Easter (have been encouraged by a series editor to do this, so not getting ahead of myself).

Prepare post-doc applications for academic year 2011/12.

Sort out teaching (preferably new courses, or even my own course!) for 2010/11.

Another journal article submitted by end 2010 (I have two coming out in April 2010!)

Not much then! Oh no!
