It hasn't been so bad today - I think if the 3rd year transition students stick together, we might just find a way forward. I have rethought the situation and I think I need them as much as they need me. Maybe we will become invaluable to each other in the long run. As a bunch we are very different, but we do feel unite in our effort to 'adapt and overcome'.
it has been suggested to me that I have a look into the stories of M.R. James for the dissertation. I have also been advised to email another lecturer, who covers the aspects of phantasmagoria in her MA studies group. Another plus, is that I have got £100 worth of Amazon vouchers for books (free - weeeeeee!!!)
Let's see what Friday brings :-)
