I feel like everything has ground to a halt. I didn’t get my ethics application signed off time to collect data this year. I don’t know if I have a next year in Oman. Getting sick of things and feeling I don’t want one. The age factor is creeping up on us. This is the last job my husband is likely to get because he will be hitting 60 and unemployable soon. I am not far behind. I am not sure why we let ourselves get so old!
I haven’t done any study since I realised my ethics was doomed. I will try to collect some data without consent and then I can work on publishing something about that just from CAS and not UNE. At least it will be something to show for my year here.
In a week or so I have to submit my revised proposal and a reading list. Not have access to a physical library is going to be an ongoing problem I can tell. All the references are books but I can’t order any books because I don’t know if they will get to me in time before a I leave. It’s also expensive to have to buy all the books rather than just borrow them and then choose the best to buy. I have found a couple of e-books but I dislike reading off the screen.
Anyway – I’ll check in with my top spinning act and get back to it.
