I know it has been FOREVER since I did an outfit post. I have been really sick for the last two weeks and haven't felt like getting dressed up at all. I swear I have been living in my pjs constantly. So lately all I have been doing is working on MA things and sleeping, I've decided not to apply for a PhD this year and instead am going to spend the time once I have finished my MA thinking about a project I really want to spend three years studying and looking at different universities that offer funding. I recieved a lot of encouragement from my tutor though and she said she would be more than willing to be my supervisor, and I also got a lovely email from a feminist scholar who had given me some advice for my BA research and loved my final piece, so I am content that it'll all be right when the time comes.
This summer will be a big change for me, moving into our own flat and working full time (hopefully!). I am excited though, I have spent the last 6 years straight sitting important exams and writing coursework so I am looking forward to having time to do my own research and reading again and to come up with a topic within feminism and film that I am really passionate about. In the meantime I have my MA dissertation on sexual violence against women in cinema, with particular focus on the films of Lars von Trier, to concentrate on. It's a heavy one, wish me luck with it!
Here's a quick outfit for today. I finally have a day off so I'm tidying and catching up on readings and tonight I am going to Lakeland to spend the vouchers I won for these cupcakes.
