My PhD has involved the capturing and processing of over 22,000 images, writing over 450 posts in this Critical Research Journal, drafting over 60,000 words and editing them down to 41,500 words. I have spent many hours outside in bad weather, and small pockets of time enjoying good weather on Skye. I have read a large number of books and academic articles and have just as many I would like to read post PhD.
The remaining time before my viva will be spent preparing for the questions the examiners might ask, having a mock viva with my supervisors and making plans for the future. I also need to continue reading the thesis so I can refer to specific parts, sections, and images as appropriate during the viva.
