If I have any ‘regular’ readers (though the only feedback is from my dad!), then I must apologise for my lack of activity on this blog in recent months. June is the time for the first piece of assessment, of sorts, in my PhD, so I have been building up to and working on this.
The hand-in is the nine-month ‘Progress Report’, and although the only piece of work that determines whether or not a PhD is awarded is the final thesis at the end of three years, the nine-month report is an important milestone that lets your supervisory team and the graduate school ensure that you are on the right track towards a PhD and have the correct scope and aims for the following two years.
Therefore, I am in the midst of writing this document, which has a word limit of 4000 words, in case you were wondering, and had excused myself from blog writing in case it sucked up all my creative writing tokens for the day! However, in an act of procrastination I decided this would be an ideal topic to write about. After all, maybe some potential PhD applicants might be reading this wondering what they will be doing eight-nine months after they begin?!
Right, I’ve gotta get back to it! I’m going to finish a couple of paragraphs about existing adaptive game systems in my literature review, get some chocolate and then catch up with some of my fellow 1st year PhD students in the SUSU Bridge Bar. Tune in next week, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel!
