It seems the positive vibes from my smiley face orange yesterday worked wonders today. I confirmed my second dissertation participant - this means next week I will be holding two of my very own interviews. I hope I'm up to the task.
The sun was on my side too. I spent most of this afternoon, apart from an hours tutorial, on the top floor of the University library on one of the sofa/table sections. Being the top floor, there are really large windows and I was really comfortable being alone sat in the glorious sunshine as I read books and drank coffee. I haven't spent an entire afternoon doing this since last summer when I spent lots of time alone reading in coffee shops. This is my feeling of being at home.
