    PhD thesis/dissertation writing support group (in London)?

    hm... honestly? I have exhausted my friends and my family are not exactly close by. I am currently not exactly a student at my university so I can't join societies. I would ideally like the group to be more about motivation than just social activities, and I think PhD students at their write up...

    PhD thesis/dissertation writing support group (in London)?

    Hi ZapperZ! Yes, you read it correct! I just feel like I could do with some support, but I'm not sure exactly what would make me feel the most supported, and I don't know what other people might want to do... I have some ideas: meet for coffee, write together, do social activities to take...

    PhD thesis/dissertation writing support group (in London)?

    I was wondering if anyone knows a good PhD thesis writing support group, either online or in London? I couldn't find any and I wanted to set up a meet up group... but I'm not sure what we would actually do to support each other... and when I finish in a few months, what then? Also I'm afraid...

    Sad times in aloneland

    really? I thought that was how its supposed to be... I am me and they try to understand me because they want to... I don't make eye contact with anyone either... maybe I'm taking 'being mysterious' a bit too far... how can I be easily understood?? I don't want to be 'in your face' all the time...

    Have a crush on the postdoc in lab

    I don't want to... like all day, whenever I see him all I want is to see him smile... so when I talk to him I feel so boring cos I think I'm boring him... I feel super boring now.

    Programs Should I go against my PhD supervisor and do what I want?

    this is a different guy!! I chose him because he seemed to know what he is doing. I do think his project would be very productive and fulfill all the criteria for a PhD and I do trust his judgement. but... I just want the feeling of doing something that is all me - that I decided that I will...

    is there anything more painful that falling for someone you can't have? why is it so stupid like that? why is it so easy to like them but impossible to stop it?

    Programs Should I go against my PhD supervisor and do what I want?

    I am just starting my phd. I am self funded so I chose my supervisor. He's working on a related area to what I want but not quite the same. I am trying to decide my phd direction right now. I want to work on something very new, very fundamental, probably unrealistic for a phd. But I want to try...

    Mentalist: be smart and paranoid, ok I can do that! I'm good at paranoia. Discuss ideas functionally, right, try to see what others think without giving your idea away.. but I'm not really smart enough to do that - and others are too smart to not realise. but be aware of others, ok. Jhae: yes...

    infatuation-wise, I realise he is the total opposite of me, maybe thats why I like him. But like with the last one, it will probably die after a while.

    Fine. lets focus on that instead. I have problems in this area too. What do you do if another student is interested in the same research as you? and they want to do the same research that you had thought of... and they are one step ahead of you and you are scared they will be better than you...
