This month wasn’t a smooth month for me, as you can tell from my major delay in getting this out. I’m finding it so hard to keep up lately!
I officially started working on SPSS this month. To be honest, I have never had a good relationship with statistics, and it has never really been my area of interest. I decided the best to go about it would be to remain optimistic, but this wasn’t always easy. There have been days when I felt confident after picking up a new skill, and there have been other days where I felt very lost and barely made any progress at all. But the good thing is that I submitted my systematic review paper. I know I won’t hear back for a long time, but at least it’s out of my hands for now. Hopefully, this will give me more time and energy to work on the statistics.
In other news, we had an EMCR symposium in our building. I’m part of the organising committee so we needed to do lots of prep beforehand. While I wasn’t in charge of many things, I still found it hard to get any work done around this period. But I very much enjoyed learning about other people’s research and left feeling very inspired!
Fun happenings this month were Father’s Day and my mum’s birthday (see pictures below). Also, I went to Canberra this month over one weekend. It was a very short visit, but it was wonderful to get away because I rarely ever go anywhere, especially out of Sydney.
