Why there is strength in (home)sickness

As of two weeks ago, I am now a resident of Rotterdam, Netherlands, and a PhD candidate at the Rotterdam School of Management. As of 1 year and 1 month ago, I was an MSc candidate at the LSE. Before that I […]

You CAN spell Dissertation without stress (I tried)

Consider this a sojourn: still writing, but not citing.

Dissertation season is upon us (to be read metaphorically); the spring of finding the right supervisor, the summer of interviews and transcriptions, the fall of analysis, and now the winter of writing up the final product. And this winter has been melancholic.

Itchy Soles, Itchy Souls: A Trip To Cambridge

On Saturday I took a trip to Cambridge from London, with the intention of seeing a new place that was close enough that I wouldn’t feel guilty to bail on the heaps of work that sat on my desk at home, but far enough that it was distinct from the London hustle and bustle.
