We've had a week of welcoming new students and I think it has gone ok. Tuesday masses of first year students came to the school and didn't know what they were doing. It was interesting to say the least, but I think in the end everyone figured out what is going on and what they are meant to do.
Yesterday we had the new postgrads coming in and that went ok as well. A very small group this year, so I think it will be a good year. I am less involved with them now that I am not the mentor for the economic and consumer psychology group, but I did meet them yesterday and showed them around the department.
Not much else new at the moment, i really need to get more writing done on my PhD. But at least the last meeting with my suoervisor was good, she had lots of nice things to say and even said my pilot study write up can be used in combination with another study I ran last year, so that is another chapter sorted. It is actually starting to get real now. I will at some point actually have a book with my name on. It really is a scary thought, but at the same time it is exciting...
and speaking of all that writing I have to do, now I am getting back to work!
