The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

Reflection s on writing-up #11

This writing-up thing must be a whole lot easier if you have a significant other to make you cups of tea and keep you in chocolate, not to mention to do the washing-up, laundry, hoovering, grocery shopping, etc.

Hey, doesn't work like that, love. I've got a significant other, but I still did most of the housework while writing up. Did get lots of cups of tea and TLC though...

As my former family doctor (since retired) used to say - "everybody needs a wife!"

I could do with some TLC. :*(

The best thing is to just let everything slide - eat ready meals, don't clean etc for as long as you can stand it, bulk buy chocolate - and then go back to being a good tidy healthy person once you finish writing up. Be a slob!!
