Hello lovely flist.  Do you know it's been so long since I posted anything that the "post an Entry" box has changed and this is the first time I'm noticing it....

I have been lurking but I've been in dissertation completion mode for MONTHS.  I've finally submitted and now I'm kind of at a loss for what to do with myself!  I'm manically applying for jobs because the lack of money is easier to live with when you're studying but just really depressing when you're doing absolutely nothing!

I am still lurking in all my fandoms, followed Doctor Who, am very excited for the return or Melin, Supernatural, Hawaii Five-0 and Glee (seriously thank you television programme schedulers you are saving my sanity by keeping me occupied with your shiny shiny shows).  I've just done a massive Atlantis rewatch as well and thinking about due South next. 

I've an idea for a H50 video bouncing around in my head, and a couple of fic ideas as well which may see the light of day as I've got a bit of time on my hands in between job applications at the moment. YAY fandom contributions!

I've a question for my flist though.  I'm contemplating applying to some uni's to do a research degree.  I've no idea how to go about this though, should I apply to more than one uni?  Is it a good idea to base my proposal on my Masters thesis or will they frown on that?  Has anyone on my flist done a PhD and have some words of wisdom?

Just logged into lj on my phone and everything was in Russian.... logged back out and in again and it was back to normal...

This, and recent downtime, is maybe a message that I should continue my very occasional lurk-age until my dissertation is completed?

*waves bye to lj again*
Hello Flist!  I am about to try and recruit you, be forewarned :)

For my Masters dissertation I am looking at how people watch television.  As I know a lot of you are avid viewers (like myself) it seemed logical to ask you all if you'd be willing to participate!

Participants will have to keep a three day diary on how much television they watch a day and how they watch it.

The project is mainly applicable for UK residents, but if you have a look at the screenschots of the table for the television diary and feel it would be applicable to your viewing habits and you are not a UK resident please volunteer and let me know!  I can always adjust it slightly for you if need be.

I've created a community on livejournal so all the information for participants is online.  If you would be willing to help please wander over to [livejournal.com profile] tvdiaryproject by clicking the graphic below and have a look!

So question to my flist, is Doctor Who airing on 23rd of April everywhere??  In America, Canada and the UK etc?  This means the US gets it first!!! How is this fair?? We wait months of American shows in the UK *sad face*

My last two assignments are due next week!  Apart from my dissertation this means I'm done with the structured part of my Masters! Scary :(  Although hopefully I'll have more time to work on my Doctor Who fic, which now has more Eleventh Doctor in it than planned...mainly because I watched too much of series 5 in one go and have his voice so much in my head that I'm thinking in it...

In other news I've added a couple of fics to my HSM Chad/Ryan College Fic List

I MISS LJ! *sigh* This time last year I was writing fic.  Tonight at ten to one in the morning I've just finished 10,000 words of 2 really roughly written essays and will spend my weekend (this time last year devoted to catching up on my flist) reading and rewriting them... Remind me again why I chose this??  £150 in my bank account, no job prospects and a Masters I'm not sure what I'm going to do with yet... nothing ever changes!

I have been reading all my flist, even if there's been a distinct lack of participation.  I also became addicted to Sherlock/Lestrade fic (from the BBC tv show) but then noticed my mum's cousin is uncannily similar looking to Rupert Graves who plays Lestrade.  Which stopped me for about two days and now I'm back to reading again :)

Now I am going to celebrate the completion of my draft essays by trawling my flist for recs and then SLEEPING! YAY!


This time next year I plan to have my dream job and be back to lj participation, this is my life aim.  Support me.
