It's strange to have a change…....

Hi everyone,

I thought I would do a little update with how things are going with my placement now that I'm nearly halfway through the 6 week journey.

I think so far my feelings about it all have been 50/50. On the one hand, I'm excited to be doing something different, in a new environment with new people and learning new skills. It's also a compliment to have been given responsibility for working on a project and being heavily involved in all aspects - the paperwork, recruiting people, gathering equipment, doing visits and data recording. The other half is slightly nervous about all the responsibility, apprehensive about how different things are and how much I have to learn and about the point where I am left to conduct visits on my own!

All in all, I have been enjoying my time here though. It's nice to do something different aside from my PhD project and to be given the opportunity to learn new things in a new environment. Hopefully, with a few more visits for the study I can start to feel more comfortable about doing them, making going it alone easier!

So now it's just a case of getting on with things, hoping for the best and waiting to see the results of the project I'm working on!
