Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1) It's beeeeen a while since I've checked in here! Hey everyone! 2) For the first time in years, I feel really disconnected from this application/interview cycle - can't believe it's rolled around again so quickly. 3) Why did I ever think doing qualitative research was a good idea? Why? Whyyyyyyy? ...

Re: Cheeky Favour-Successful Personal Statements

It is also about our founding motivations, which included a desire to disrupt the advantages conferred by already knowing clinical psychologists, and to open the process to a greater diversity of applicants. Plus we don't want to do anything to undermine the fairness of the selection process, or be...

I really thought I'd replied earlier - Geisha, I'm so, so sorry about your dog and the horrible response from that person. How utterly barbaric. So glad to hear he's at home and recovering. Hopefully being loved on and pampered as befits a dog in his state.

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

Not to laugh at your pain but :lol: Seriously, nearly all of the shattered ankles I've known in roller derby have been like that, or in warm up, or when leaving the track, never in actual game play. It is absolutely sod's law. Here's hoping you heal quickly, much love and healing wishes to you :) D...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

You poor thing! Isn't it always the way with "freak" accidents? Let's hope it heals quickly and you're eventually able to "dine out" on the story. I broke my arm very badly when I was 12 in a REALLLLLY stupid accident!! (Basically put my foot in a hole!!). Ultimately it resulted in no long term dam...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

Context to all of my thoughts: I shattered my ankle on Monday night. I've had surgery and some plates and screws fitted and have a bit of a journey ahead in terms of recovery and mobility. Poor you!! Hope it heals and you're "up and running" soon. How did you do it?? Thanks Geisha :) I hope so too!...

Re: Advice for mature applicant / parent starting out

Though I'm a trainee, I didn't go into it with a career change, and don't have any kids - so I won't weigh in with my own experiences of challenges during training as I don't think it's what you're asking for. :wink: :wink: :wink: Saying that - after the advice you get from people with experiences a...

Re: Mileage Tax Relief - Temporary Workplace Relief for Trai

Do UEA reimburse for mileage to Uni then? We can't simultaneously have two permanent places of work, I'm imagine. So if my home is X, and uni is Y which is 80 miles from X, could we claim on that trip every time we have to make it? They DO reimburse for mileage, but I actually don't know from where...
