Successfully negotiated this years annual review as I summarised 12 months of work. Data collection completed, thematic analysis started and two conference papers in. It felt good to review the years work as time passes so quickly and when you are so embedded in what you are doing it is useful to 'stand back' and see it as someone else may do. My goal of writing my first draft of my thesis in this year ahead was described as ambitious but I would rather work towards a goal and allow for a little slippage as if I set goals too far in the future I can lack motivation in the move towards those goals. So motivated and spurred on by the review this year I am full steam ahead with the analysis. Although trying to embed audio into my conference presentation has seemed more of a challenge these past few days.
