My month started off with ISBNPA conference which was held in Hong Kong this year. This was my second time attending this conference (after Victoria, Canada last year). I really enjoyed the conference as it is closely related to my PhD topic. I also had a chance to explore Hong Kong. It was nice to get away from the cold and take a mini break (click here to read the blog).

In terms of PhD work, I had a super productive month. I was bogged down writing a really big ethics application which will form the last section of my PhD.  When I started, it seemed like an impossible task because I hadn’t done anything this big before. It took some time to come together, with the help of my supervisor and PhD colleagues. Honestly, I am so grateful to all the people that supported me, because I couldn’t have done it all on my own.

In other news, I’ve joined as a DAA Media Spokesperson this month. I had applied for this role back in April after learning that a position had become available in NSW.  I started writing for the media last year and I knew it’d be the perfect opportunity to hone my media skills. I was so thrilled when I heard the good news, it literally made my week and was probably my highlight from this month!

On a personal note, I’ve had some past issues resurface this month. It has been tough and it has been giving me major anxiety at times. But I’ve mostly been trying to focus on the positives and reminding myself of the great things that happened this month. I’m going to keep my focus on the sunny side, just like my eggs!
