You can check whether a college or uni is "real" here:

BTW I'm not suggesting that these aren't - just giving the information!

Timefortea should be reading and summarising some articles for her supervisor but is actually playing fire engines and ambulances with her son. :-)

"I know I'm stereotyping, but every one of those Italian girls has Nigella Lawson hair and looks better in skinny jeans than I do"

Juno - think yourself lucky. I live in Italy and I feel the same about practically everyone else - including all the mums at my son's school. Yes, I am the only bleary-eyed mum to turn up with weetabix on my sweatshirt :$

I have worked at the uni for many years (am a mature student!) and I have had students' parents coming in to see me to ask if I will change their child's marks!! :-s

Thread: Fieldwork getting me down!

I have only just started interviewing participants for my research and am mainly dealing with elderly people. The trouble is they are really getting me down! All the people I have spoken too are so negative - they keep on telling me how terrible it is to get old and how down they feel...I am finding it very hard to empathise and not get sucked into a big vortex of despair. I am also getting requests for practical help which I don't really have time to do - I have my own family to look after but it is really difficult to say no! Has anyone else had this problem? I have been depressed in the past and am really worried that doing this fieldwork is not going to be good for me emotionally - esp as I am not at the university at the moment so don't really have anyone I can unwind/debrief with. :-( Has anyone else had problems like this? How do you manage not to empathise too much? I wish I had chosen a different topic to be honest!

PhdBug - just wanted to say that your story made my day!! Sorry! :-) I once emailed a whole list of people at work (including my boss) asking them is they wanted to come to a party. Another colleague replied to my email saying "she'd love to come but not if that ****er of our boss was going to be there". Of course, she clicked "reply all" instead of just "reply". And then she tried to blame me for her technical incompetence!!!:-)

Hello. I keep on reading everywhere how important it is to back up data. the problem is, not being very technically-minded, I'm not sure exactly what this means! Do I just save a copy of what I write on a USB key or do I need an external harddrive and if so, what type? Thanks for any tips!:-)
