    3rd year part-time. At the moment I'm like "why the hell do I do this to myself" but generally I'm enjoying the experience, though not looking forward to the intensity/pressure of writing up :eek:

    Fifth year (American system): feeling good, the best I've felt in my time in the program. I finally have autonomy and I'm working on the stuff that fires my imagination. Last year was the absolute worst, I was crying pretty much constantly, and I felt totally trapped without an end in sight. What a difference 6 months makes! I'm sure there will be more changes ahead, but thankfully I know now that I can weather the storms.
