Thing 4 makes me think of a Dr Seuss character! I’m hoping that these things are as much fun as the friends in the Cat in the Hat, but that they cause slightly less chaos in my life 🙂
I’ve already mentioned that I follow the blog Patter. I am also a fan of the Thesis Whisperer: http://thesiswhisperer.com/
I’ve been following this blog since I started my M.Ed (so a number of years now). Not only does it contain a wealth of practical advice on the student researcher life and process, it’s also entertaining. I have been known to laugh out loud at times when reading it – so perhaps it’s not entirely suitable for a serious and silent workplace!
As a further recommendation, I really like the way the author, Inger Mewburn, writes. She has a relaxed-without-being-too-informal style that I enjoy reading. If you haven’t already discovered this particular blog, then check it out. Meanwhile, I am going to check out some of the others recommended in Thing 4. At the very least I expect them to provide me with some further tools for procrastination.
