a casual update
Hi study buddies!!
Not much has happened on my end, school-wise, aside from writing essays, presenting on articles, and a lot of reading. but a few things have occurred that I felt would be good to comment on for my gradblr, so here we are!
firstly, I applied to three major government-funded doctoral scholarships for my province, and Canada as a whole. While I'm still waiting for the results of the provincial one (around May 2022), I got rejected for the second round of both federal ones.
At first, I was quite bummed about it, but I realized quickly, especially with the second scholarship, that I did write a really good application, despite the fact that it wasn't accepted. I had it edited by my supervisor, received tips from my peers, and overall felt really confident about it. I didn't want the results of the application to lessen those positive feelings. I'm still proud of what I wrote, and what my project is, and I have every intention of applying next year as well.
I also saw on Instagram that a PhD creator I follow got her scholarship (for the same award) in her 5th year of study! Which really encouraged me to keep pushing and trying to improve my application. Even if I never win, I think my research project is really important and exciting and I am glad to be doing it.
I suppose this post is just a reminder to not give up and to be proud of all your hard work, even if the results don't turn out ideally.
We got this, pals!!

Convincing himself that he would work more effectively at a coffee shop, the grad student is not surprised to be wrong.

HOW I PLAN MY WEEK AS A PHD STUDENT
I found the lack of structure and timetabled events the most difficult adjustment to make when I started my PhD last month. I love structure and I love routine, being without one made me panic quite a bit. One thing that has helped with this adjustment is planning my weeks using Google Calendar.
Tumblr media
I have 5 separate calendars:
DAILY
This is the calendar I use to schedule mundane events and tasks that happen on a daily basis. At the minute, this just consists of scheduling in a lunch hour and taking my meds.
Tumblr media
PERSONAL
My personal calendar is used for significant events in my personal life that have been planned weeks in advance and shouldn't be missed unless there's an emergency. As you can see, this week I had an appointment for my eyelash extensions and I also have a gig on Saturday. I have the alerts for this calendar switched on so I never forget when I have something important coming up.
Tumblr media
PHD
This calendar is used to mark important milestones and events relating to my PhD. This includes mandatory lectures (I only have 3 this semester, and 2 have already passed!), meetings with my supervisors and academic advisor and deadlines.
Tumblr media
TO-DO
My to-do calendar is the one that gets used the most regularly. Instead of writing a to-do list, I put the things that have to be done into my calendar with an allotted amount of time. If I know how I want to spend my week, I can do this on a Monday morning and other times I'll do it on a day-to-day basis. This week I know there's certain things I need to do while they're still fresh in mind and so I've already filled them in. Before using this method, I'd find that a to-do list is way too flexible for the way my mind works and I'd spend hours on a task that only really should've taken 30 minutes. I find that my time blocking my to-do list, the things on the list actually get done and I'm more productive with my time
Tumblr media
WORK
My last calendar is for work. At the moment, I teach at the university, I tutor high school maths and I am also a specialist mental health mentor and counsellor. All of the hours I spend working are put into my work calendar so it's easy to keep track of my hours worked and, in turn, my expected pay every month.

15 September 2021
First day back in the office in over a year. Still a bit nervous about the crowds on campus (fingers crossed there won’t be another outbreak), but it felt good to be back, and I’m feeling more motivated and positive about my thesis after meeting with my supervisor

the past month has been wild! i started my phd (i'm researching how support networks contribute to student mental health) and i've had so much reading and admin work to do in the first few weeks. i finally got to visit campus (!!!!) and it's absolutely beautiful, i'm so excited to spend the next 3 years here. i'm hoping my posts will become more regular again as i really get stuck into my research. hope everyone is well & safe & happy! :-)
