Dear forumites,

It has been so wonderful getting to 'know' some of you over these 3 years and in countless ways you have inspired and sustained and energized me. I think it is time to call it a day on this forum, with the PhD thankfully done, with your support!

A big thank you to all of you, but especially to those that I remember for their help - Eska for her loving support last year when a relative was very very ill, and for her support in general, Natassia for being so inspiring. for sharing with me her loving relationship with her grandad which strengthened me and for much needed hair advice, keenBean for being a great academic example to learn from, Bilbobaggins for being a true inspiration, Walmiskipeasucker for his humor but most for a sweet poem he wrote for me one summer on the forum which I have saved with me, Sneaks for her help with sharing work when I needed to see some good stuff for direction, and many others who offered sympathy solidarity, congratulations, pushes and pats on the back as appropriate.

So, b'bye for now,

Lots of love,

Bug

All the best Bug and perhaps bump into you elsewhere.

The original reason I ended back here after a long absence was originally to seek advice due to a friend possibly seeking to take the PhD king's shilling. I'm somehow still here. I can't find my old account either (though haven't looked too hard)!!!

I may slowly disappear myself now my friend has decided against. However, it also has to be said there's plenty deep within the process who need to hear a friendly word or two, and sometimes speaking to others anonymously on here to people who are doing and have finished is easier than constantly burdening those around you. This place may well have saved many from making the wrong decision and those who've been through do have a lot to offer in the way of advice to those still slaving away.

Hey Phdbug- We'll miss you on here, but best of luck for the future, and I hope that things work out for you. You've been a great support to me at times as well, and undoubtedly others on here, and you deserve all the luck in the world. Best, KB

PhDbug, all the best for the next chapters of your soon-to-be flourishing career. I'd wish you luck in your academic pursuits but for some reason I don't think you'll need it. Oh, and when I most likely end up living in a bedsit and selling peanuts on Blackpool Beach (my job's not going that bad, really...), bumping into you in your gold horse-drawn ivory tower :-) in the most unlikely of circumstances, make sure you buy some and say hello!

Bug's done,
She had fun,
But now she's gone,
And said 'so long!'

Sorry, that's all I can muster after a 9 hour day of coding and 4 hour commute in the worst little car from hell. (up)

Hi Phdbug,
I always think it's terribly sad when people say goodbye, can't you say "adieu" instead?! As Mackem_Beefy says, for those of us still in the process it's always helpful to have PhD veterans on board to give advice from time to time. Having said that, I understand there comes a time when you have to move on, so good luck in your future endeavours, and thank you for your advice (up)
