Life is indeed like a box of chocolate, you never know which one you are going to get. Today I had my chat with supervisors, it seems that the Dean does not want me in the program and will kick me out of uni. Just know, when i got all in place and in the right frame of mind – good project, academic relevance, awesome supervisors and sometime to write – now I am not good enough for the uni. My supervisors are doing what they can to keep me in the system, but it may not be enough. I had to write a story about why i am so late, without blaming my supervisors. That’s hard because I think I am as guilty as they are in this late mess.
Also, surprise, surprise … I had a chat with my exsupervisor, the first encounter after our break-up, and all i can say is that sometimes you are up and sometimes you are down. Today she was down, and I actually felt very sad for her. She has worked so hard to get project work and funding, and now after the big announcement, they take away the grant money? Life is so unfair sometimes. I do wish the best for her, even though a few weeks ago I was heartbroken. I hope she recovers and keeps going. Academic funding is sooo competitive and you can really trust anyone. Hard to believe that Jen will do the dirt on her .. this people don’t have a sense of loyalty. Also, I saw how the academics criticize and envy eachother … just like any other workplace. My work seems friendly compared to uni
At work we moved to the new building, what a building. Soo beautiful. I love it. Only issue is that seating next to my boss. Gee no much time for literature reading, let alone writing and printing. The pic here is my new building.
Today, the only writing I did was putting together an explanation as to why i am so late with confirmation. The reasoning had to be academic, e.g. the research path i was undertaken would have left me to reach limited conclusions, so it was needed to change approach and methodology. I did write a bit on that, even though is not really for my thesis, but without that writing there would be no thesis.
