Sink or swim…cuir cuma an mhisnigh ort féin

Lynch_Justin--Terrapins-Swim-Team-

Tá sé tamaill ó chaith mé súil ar an leathanach seo agus níos faide go fóill ó scríobh mé aon rud fiúntach. Ach, iarradh orm ar maidin cúpla focal a rá mar gheall ar an mblag agus an fáth ar shocraigh mé ar pháirt a ghlacadh ann an chéad lá riamh. Cuir sé sin ag smaoineamh mé agus an chéad rud a rinne mé, mar a dhéanaim go minic na laethanta seo nuair a bhíonn in amhras céard le déanamh, chuaigh mé caoldíreach go dtí Thesiswhisperer. An chéad rud a tharraing mo shúil nó an t-alt “Sink or swim” a foilsíodh ar an mblag sin le déanaí.

5 Things I Tell My Students (that I should really listen to myself).

We are all guilty of not practising what we preach from time to time, but never am I more aware of this than when I’m passing sage old advice on to my undergraduate students. I preach time management and essay construction, and often think, ‘wow, this stuff is golden.’ Things like:

Ag roghnú láthair le haghaidh agallaimh taighde

Tháinig an lá agus bhí mé réidh chun agallamh a chur ar dhuine den bheirt scannánóir a bhfuil staidéar á dhéanamh agam ar a shaothar scannánaíochta. Bhí idir sceitimíní agus faitíos orm. An gcuirfinn na ceisteanna “cearta”? An mbeadh fonn air labhairt liom in aon chor, nó an é go ndéarfadh sé leis féin “Seo chugainn duine eile den lucht acadúil, iad ag iarraidh staidéar a dhéanamh orainn”?

PhD Blogger’s How-To: So You Want to Blog (Academic Edition)

So You Want to Blog (Academic Edition)

What a summer.

I wrote and I read and I wrote and read and I went to conferences. Four conferences in fact. And I wrote a new paper for each conference. Yeh, not the best idea I’ve had recently. Somewhere in between that reading and writing and conference going I also made time for my husband and daughter.  Continue reading “PhD Blogger’s How-To: So You Want to Blog (Academic Edition)”

Non-bodied and left to wonder? Maybe not.

I’ve never met my supervisor. We know what each other looks like because we’ve exchanged photos but our only communication has been through email or over Skype. You see, I live in New York City and she lives in Ireland. On our last Skype call she asked me how I felt about our (rather unconventional-my words) pairing. I was stumped but managed to say a few jumbled words. I’m not dissatisfied by any means. On the contrary, things have been quite smooth, maybe so smooth that the mere unconventionality of it has gone right over my head. The relationship between a Grad student and a supervisor is an important one so I decided to give her question some more thought.  Continue reading “Non-bodied and left to wonder? Maybe not.”
