Onwards and upwards!
Another update/opportunity for me to reflect/vent about how things are going with my PhD! Last week I was stuck on a piece of lab work that was taking up all of my time and energy. Thankfully, by the end of the week I had worked through what the problem was and now I'm waiting on a response from some technical support to move forward. I was relived that I now understood the problem and hopefully it should work out fine. However, by the end of last week I was struggling to motivate myself and concentrate in general, so with familiy visiting for Easter I had a five day break from work over the long Easter weekend. This has helped me to de-stress and relax a little and now I feel more focused and determined.
Overall, things aren't going that badly I think I just worry too much! But stopping doing this is far easier said than done so I'm focusing on moving forward with the things I am worrying about so they become less of a worry if that makes sense! I only have one pair of hands and one brain so I plan to set targets, work hard and have regular breaks to maintain my sanity! I don't have much else to report besides me trying to keep calm and battle onwards! I hope everyone had a good Easter - bring on the next bank holiday lol!
