Status Update

I'm getting close to sending a full draft of the thesis to my supervisors (and I mean 'close' in terms of time, not coherence), and while I'm not close to finishing just yet, here is my research to date in (approximate) figures:  

2 laptops
2 overseas research trips
3 conferences
4 reviews out, 1 in progress
4 publications out, 6 pending, 2 in progress
7 semesters of teaching
15 months suspension, including maternity leave
2561 Endnote references
$80 000 miscellaneous funding
81 000 words of thesis
400 000 words of notes

It's been a busy few years when you look at it like that...

It's been a busy 5 years, 3 months and 6 days when you look at it like that...


  1. You forgot to include how long since you started. ... Just for perspective. : )

  2. But that's the demoralising part! Oh ok then.

  3. Well for all that, you've got a pretty sweet publication record!

  4. First complete draft, that's awesome, congrats Sanna :o) I have to admit it was only at this stage that I really was able to pinpoint - and as embarassing it may sound that I fully understood - what it was that I wanted to bring across... After that I really satrted to enjoy working on it again!!!! I'm with you in thoughts :o)

  5. Fluidimaginings: maybe, but "pending" always involves big "if".

    My dear G&F! I know *exactly* what you mean! I've heard that from enough people to not be too embarrassed by it, though. :-)

  6. Wow! That's pretty impressive! Good work on all the publications :)

    Hope the draft is going well.
