Grateful Graduate Project for 2012



It has been a while since the last post on this blog.

This can be largely explained by having to shuttle between Paris and London and the joys of PhD student life that are often hidden within,  and between, copious amounts of reading.

While musing on the irritating aspects of grad student life, the reasons to be thankful began to appear far outweigh the minor (and utterly superficial, one must add) complaints.  

Paris and London provide a stimulating and dynamic context in which to engage with the leading intellectual currents of our time, they are at the centre of several the major trends that drive our world, both offer vibrant cultural life – it does not get any better than this – well, this a completely biased view, unscientific and probably incorrect to assert. Nonetheless, who cares?

In light of this, this blog is going to list at least one thing to be grateful for on each of the 365 days of 2013. More specifically, it will name 365 things to be grateful for about being a graduate student in Paris and London.

There’s already a lag of one day – not an encouraging start. So, perhaps it is better to say that every effort will be made to post a reason to be grateful to match the number of days in a year. This will hopefully coincide with actual calendar days. 

Here’s to a fabulous 2013!
