Like my photos? I now have my very own website! I will post all my zoo trips here and many more shots than I post on DA... www.kjrwildlifephotography.com Where the hell have I been for the last month?
A simple answer to a simple question, I've been working on my PhD thesis
Now I know that I have said this ALOT over the past 3-4 years on DA, but now I am in the last 2-3 months of it, things have really got batshit crazy in terms of workload. I am currently working 14 hours a day, literally 14 hours, which only leaves 10 hours for sleeping/eating/all those other pesky things one must do to keep existing. And unfortunatly DA time has not made that cut
I do not intend to be gone forever, and I will still be logging in every so often in a week, but I can certainly no longer login in everyday like I used to so I am sorry to everyone who has been kind enough to send me a comment on my work, I will get around to replying to you but it won't be soon! >.< Exciting news and plans for the rest of 2013
The end of your doctorate means you have to get another research grant to continue your journey in becoming a proper scientist. This is unually in the form of a post-doctorate fellowship, but these are very hard to come by due to intense compeition and you HAVE to have published papers to stand a chance of getting one. Which, I don't have right now! But I'm working on 3 currently alongside my thesis so hopefully that will change soon.
I will be presenting my work at two international conferences in the fall though, which is amazing and I also won the student travel grants to both of them, so I get to have my plane flights for free/cheaper than they would have been otherwise! The conferences are the Marine Mammal Biennial in NEW ZEALAND
(YAY am so going to visit weta workshop while I'm there!) and the International Society for Wildlife Endcorinology conference in Chicago. So if anyone has any accomodation/visitor tips ESPECIALLY for Chicago (As I've been to NZ before so know what to expect) feel free to shout them out in the comments below! Especially about places to stay, apparently there is a marathon on the same week as the conference so accomodation might be difficult to find
I will also be heading out to the seal colonies this winter! Just the Isle of May season, but it will be amazing to be out in the field having missed out on all the field seasons last year. YAY SEALS!
Finally, and really the most exciting, life changing thing for me, after five years of long distance relationship, me and my other half will be living together. He is moving in with me this week having got a job here in Scotland! Am so unbelievably happy, and everything in my flat is currently super chaotic as I'm having to try to make room in it for another person! But it's completely worth it, am so happy to finally be living together again ^-^Comissions - are now closed for the time being
because of my crazy workload, I am closing commissions for the time being. They will open again once I have handed in, as I love drawing such a variety of characters and beasties!
Everyone who has ordered a commission and paid already will still get their picture, don't worry! I'm just not accepting any more right now.
