I had better not be dying

Postby Capital H on July 20th, 2007, 4:39 pm

Good news for once, although I am one of lifes worst pessimists and even when I got on a train the other day I had to assure my fellow passengers that it would not get in on time because I am a Jonah.

However a little sunshine entered my life today in that I found out that my doctoral research proposal has been accepted so I am going to be headed toward a PhD over the next few years.

Never mind that I am still not too sure whether my speech is going to last the course as I still feel like I am talking with marbles in my mouth.

Well mentally I am improving nonetheless because a few months ago I had given up hope of even applying since I was so convinced that I was not long for this world.

Well speech apart and that has to resolve itself one way or another, at least I have something to look forward to

H, just wondered where you're gonna be doing your PhD and what your research will be about?

Essentially the PhD is in Education, but I will be researching video and autism
, investigating the effectiveness or otherwise of videos in informing families with an autistic member about autism.
There has been relatively little research into educational video in general and none into educational video and autism.

I am in it for the long term it could take six years before my thesis is accepted.

In the meantime, doubtless I will be invited to contribute to various journals or to make presentations based on the state of my research.

Got to say I am really excited about it all.
