Over the last year and a half I have spent a large quantity of time studying. I have studied every weekend. I have taken exciting titles such as ‘Research Perspectives on Academic Listening’ away on holiday with me or not gone away on holiday at all. I have turned into a genius at getting a word-count down (hyphenated words only count as one). I have lost too much weight and had to buy new clothes. I have made myself so ill I fainted at the market and got driven home by the man who sells me cucumbers. And I have become significantly better at my job than I ever was before all of this. I think I may have even made myself cleverer (the brain is a muscle…). I have also spent a huge amount of time at home on my own so photos are of my flat, which I love.
