Progressive day

Moon on a chilly night

Today was almost as productive as tonight is chilly: I finished quite a bit of thesis reading, some thesis writing, and a funding application.While that’s not enough to reverse the tide of ever more emails in need of response, and ever fewer days in which to finish so many things, I did better than break even.

During the rest of the evening, I will read one more thesis: this one on the use of science in drafting the EC Biomass Action Plan. Amazing how these things only take a couple of hours to read carefully, but require hundreds of hours of work and thousands of hours of angst to produce.

Sometimes, I really wish there was at least one other person studying environmental politics with whom I could speak on a regular basis.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
