Hey everyone! I hope you're all well! I'm plodding along with labwork and life haha! I'm going to Serbia in a few weeks for a wedding so I'm trying to get a section of lab work done before I go so that I have material ready for when I get back and I can move on to the next stage of experiments, so I've been a busy bee :) I think I have finally found a dress! So I ordered 10 from ASOS, and they were all pretty horrible on me, so I went and ordered another 14 from New Look XD And there are 2 which I like, both navy, and I guess similar but nevermind! And I have 2 weddings coming up so it works out perfectly :)

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well! I've been very busy, I feel like that's just my life right now, and it will probably be like this for the next year woo! The lab is keeping me on my toes, so there's always plenty to do! And today I found out that I will be basically the Serbian equivalent of a bridesmaid for my cousin! Which is exciting and I've just done an ASOS order for £350 and ordered 10 potential dresses haha! Hopefully at least one fits!

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well! I feel like the past week all I've done is go to the lab, eat, and go to sleep :') It's been quite tiring but the pressure is building up as I'm hoping to finish all of my experiments by October if I can :) So this weekend has been nice and relaxed, I enjoyed the sunshine a little bit yesterday, went to the gym and I started watching Legion which I'm really enjoying! :)

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well! I've had quite a relaxed week, I visited family, helped mum in the allotment and saw some friends which was really nice :) I've also finished season 2 of Chicago Med XD I like watching series but I end up doing nothing else haha!

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well and Happy Easter! Our Serbian Easter is technically next weekend but as it's a long weekend and I'm home this weekend mum is making roast lamb for us all which should be really yummy! And I also have the task of baking a cake for us all so I think I will make one using sweet potato :) My long weekend has been nice and relaxed, chilling with family, I went to the gym and for lunch with my brother and then I also saw my best friend yesterday for a catch up :)

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well! I've had a pretty chilled out weekend and I pretty much spent it relaxing and watching different series :) I finished Mushi-Shi last weekend which I really enjoyed watching, it's an anime and the episodes are quite bittersweet, but I really like the story lines and the animations :) I'm all caught up with The Good Doctor which I'm also really enjoying and I've also started watching Chicago Med as I wanted something kind of similar as I like those kind of Doctor/ER/petty drama kind of shows haha :)

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well and enjoying the second round of snow if you're from England! It's so strange to have so much snow here, especially this late into the year!
Also, I passed my transfer viva!!! I feel so relieved, and I'm glad that I passed! So usually around halfway through your PhD you need to write a transfer thesis which is a mini thesis/bigger dissertation of a literature review, your results and discussion so far and what you're going to do for the rest of your PhD and then you have a viva with 2 internal examiners where they ask you lots of questions on it all. If you pass then you can carry on with your PhD and if you fail then you leave with an MPhil, so I'm very glad that I passed!

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well and you've enjoyed the snow! I'm so surprised at how much there was, especially down South! I've had a really nice week, my mum came to stay with me for a few days and she did loads of lovely mum things such as cook dinner and look after me and clean and tidy my flat for me :') She's such a cutie! Now I just need to keep everything lovely and organised :)
I've also been watching The Good Doctor which I'm really enjoying! It's a cross between Grey's Anatomy and House and it follows an autistic doctor who also has savant syndrome. I think I've pretty much cried in every episode so far haha! I'm up to date with it now so I'd love to hear if you have any TV show recommendations!

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well and that you're enjoying the sunshine even if it's really cold! My week has been pretty much the same, filled with experiments and gym haha! I've been set a viva data for my transfer thesis on the 12th March so I need to start revising and fingers crossed I pass and I can continue on with my PhD!

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well! And I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day! I went to Five Guys with my lovely PhD friend and gym buddy and had a burger and fries, their fries are so good! And then afterwards we went to Wahaca for churros, which are always good! And then on the weekend my best friend from home popped by and she bought me some flowers! And we spent the day chatting, eating lots of food and watching Black Mirror. I'm so glad I have really great friends and if I'm being honest, this year is probably up there with one of my favourite Valentine's/Galentine's days! :)

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well! The last couple of weeks have been quite busy and tiring with work and experiments and life, I've finally finished writing my transfer thesis, so tomorrow I will print and bind it.. Now I just need to pass my viva so I can progress with my PhD! *Fingers crossed!*

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well! I've had a good week, I've been quite busy with my experiments and by the end of Friday I managed to get significant results for these sets of experiments that I've been working towards for a while which is great! So now I can take this information forward and carry on with my experiments and hopefully I can generate some more data :) And then yesterday I went for drinks and dancing for a close friend's birthday and it was a really fun night :)

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well! I've had a very busy week in the lab doing lots of experiments. I'm hoping to finish in the lab by October this year so it's going to be very busy from now on and hopefully I'll be able to get everything done and get some good data to put in my thesis :) I've also started a new workout plan with my PhD friend and yesterday I planned my meals for the week and did a healthier food shop so fingers crossed I'll stick to it and keep this up XD

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well! I hope you're all having a good start to your new year! And merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate today :) I've had quite a relaxed week, I spent New Year's Eve with close friends which was really nice, I went shopping, went to the gym a few times, I went back to work and I did a few experiments and I've planned what I'm going to do this week, I saw friends again on Friday and we had a night in playing Wii, and yesterday my best friends and I did a good leg session at the gym :)
