Thesis Talk #4: Some Good News

Guys, I finally have some good news relating to my thesis! My first chapter is mostly done! I say ‘mostly’ because I’m waiting for clarification on something from my supervisor, but after that, it’s done!

Thesis Talk #3: I Feel Good

Well it’s been a little while since I did a thesis talk post. This is a super short update, but you’ll understand why as you read it. I’ve barely done anything since my last update. I lost all motivation for my thesis (and everything else) in the last week of May. At the time, I […]

Thesis Talk #1: The Books

Hello, lovely people! This is a very hastily put together post today, but I hope that you still enjoy it. I’ve been wanting to talk more about my thesis lately, but I’ve been kind of scared to. I guess it’s a mix of being worried about self-plagiarism, but there’s also this fear that I don’t […]

A New Age

With my final results released yesterday, I’ve reached a new stage in my life. My Bachelor’s degree is now over, and it’s time to move onto my Honours. Today, I wanted to chat a little bit about what that means for the blog. The answer is pretty simple; more posts about disability. Yep, that’s right, […]

Mini-Discussion on Disability Inclusion

I don’t consider myself an angry person. In fact, it takes quite a lot of shitty stuff to get me angry at anything. That is until disability comes into the mix. With my thesis, that you’re all already sick of hearing about, coming up, I’ve been becoming more aware of the disability studies and discourse […]

Disability and Making Others Comfortable

Lately, I’ve been diligently working on my proposal for Honours next year. For those of you who don’t know, I’m looking at disability in YA. I’m sure 99% of you are aware of the diversity discussion happening in the blogosphere right now. You can probably guess from my Honours project as to which side I’m […]
