Thank you for visiting my blog.
I’m a research student in Film Studies working through the major corrections of my thesis. Major corrections is the equivalent of disaster for a Ph.D. student, meaning I didn’t get the degree on my first submission. I need to revise my thesis according to the examiners’ suggestions and re-submit within a year’s time. This is a laborious and painstakingly process as I have to rebuild confidence on my critical ability and writing skills in order to work through the corrections. The next time I submit will be make or break.
While doing my Ph.D., I discovered the fascinating world of aerial, my favourite apparatus being the rope. I train about two to three times a week depending on my schedule and budget (aerial classes are not cheap!). There are many differences between thesis writing and aerial training, but both require relentless effort, concentration, and dedication to reap the rewards. This could be a straight-legged propeller (can’t do yet), or a beautifully written argument. I’ve started this blog to motivate myself through the thesis corrections and to keep a record of my training progress.
