You may have noticed a certain lack of recent updates to this blog; there’s a simple reason for that: namely, I write best when I have something to which to react. At present, however, there is honestly very, very little going on in my life. My recent triumphs in grad school and in Strasbourg have been followed-up by…essentially nothing.
I’m living with my parents at present; it’s certainly not a situation that I find favourable, but I’m afraid it was unavoidable. I had to give up my apartment in order to go to Strasbourg, and I had no job or course of study waiting for me upon my return. As a result, here I sit: a decorated, twenty-six year old Master of Science alone and unemployed in her parents’ house with no place to go and nothing to do other than the thankless task of job hunting. Blegh.
I know, of course, what I want to do in the longer term. My heart is now set on a Ph.D, but unfortunately, I didn’t come to that conclusion until it was too late to register for one. Hopefully, I’ll able to find some sort of employment within the next few weeks just so that I can have some structure or spending-money, but at present I am just very, very bored.
