This has been my PhD blog/diary and on Monday July 18 I graduated, completing the whole process from registration in 4 years. It was a glorious day – having boycotted my first degree ceremony as a bourgeois irrelevance, I was thrilled my 87 yr old father and my sister came up from London to be part of it. Either I’ve sold out, or recognised the value of rituals – the latter I think. Much of the thesis writing was very lonely, plodding up to the loft day after day, week after week to struggle with ideas and words  when you want to be somewhere, anywhere else, so it was great to celebrate the against-the-odds completion. Felt tremendous gratitude for all the support I received and tremendous sense of achievement – as I said to Leeds Met reporter:

I will continue to blog from http://www.johannafawkes.com and will start a diary about the Australian adventure, but this chapter has come to an end. Thanks.
