  1. Hello, I am starting to feel overwhelmed (end of my first semester as a PhD student). I have two papers to write. I have a book chapter to turn in as a co-author (I was invited to contribute to a book that's exactly related to my doctoral work, I could not say no). I also have my research assistantship.
  2. Media interview tomorrow morning! I'm so anxious but I said yes!
  3. I submitted my Trudeau scholarship application tonight.
  4. Application submitted tonight.
  5. So, despite the fact that I am going through another shitty week in my love life (as usual), here are the positive things career-wise: - will publish an op-ed exactly on my research topic and will get paid for it, - i have won another community award -i was invited to speak at a national conference that's exactly related to my doctoral work. i'm nervous because I don't have original data, but i said yes because they really wanted my expertise. -i was invited as a co-author to be part of a book that's exactly related to my research work, also got paid for that.
  6. They said it's okay if my topic does not relate to that theme. I still have technical issues (one extra referree that needs to be deleted and for some reason, I have two applications drafts in the portal...) They are not responding back, I hope it won't affect my ability to apply.
  7. The semester is almost over. I'm really greatful for being able to pursue a Ph.D. Really grateful. It's a lot of work, but a lot of fun as well so far.
  8. I may apply. There is a strong likelihood that I will be in the US for a research internship.
  9. My sister was telling this woman that I am doing a PhD. The woman replied back that I will never find a man. yikes. I wasn’t there when it happened but my sister - who is very proud of me - felt very puzzled by this woman’s comment.
  10. I am quite dissapointed by this year's theme. The cycle of leadership training this year has "Technology and ethics" as a theme, in relation to health care, bioethics and artificial intelligence. My work does not relate to that theme. But it does relate to one of the main themes of the Foundation. I wonder if this will make me disqualify if I want to apply to Trudeau. Wow.
  11. Between your master's and a Ph.D. degree?
  12. No. I know multiple people around me who wrote books without PhDs. They tended to be books geared towards the general public (non-fiction essays on a specific topic), most of them had master's degrees.
  13. It's for people in the social sciences and humanities! I don't think I'll get this award, but I am going to try anyways. Yes, there's a public policy incline to the research projects they fund! They want research that will have impact on society and outside of academia. Thanks for the good luck
  14. Working on my research proposal. Significantly different from last years' application for other scholarships I could not just do copy-paste. It's a tough process. I hope it'll be worth it.
  15. Hello, does anyone know of any software, trainings and books that talk about how to analyse Twitter data? I'm looking to conduct a critical content analysis of Twitter data in relation to my thesis topic, and I have zero idea where to begin or where to look on how to do this. Thanks!
  16. Hello, I was wondering if I can ask my thesis advisor for referals for emotional support in regards to my thesis topic. I deal with trauma in my research, and I feel like I am going to need a bit of mental health support in order to be able to work on this topic.
  17. Hello, I was wondering if some of you have used community-based/action or participatory research methods for your doctoral research thesis. I am considering it because I want my research to have a meaningful impact to the marginalized communities I will be in contact with (or at least, some impact). However, I want to complete my Ph.D. in 4 or 5 years, so I am wondering if it is realistic to do that with that type of methodology. PS : I will discuss it with my advisor as well, but wanted to hear from doctoral students or people who have completed Ph.D.s as well.
  18. I got my diploma! It's official now and no one can take it back from me lol
  19. I recommend Focusmate. It's a free app, but it works beautifully for me, even if it felt awkward at first.
  20. My abstract for a conference got accepted! I'm heading to the UK baby!!! The conference is exactly on my research topic!!

  22. One of my referres has little time. So I wrote one of the reference letters myself, from A to Z. It's hard to self-praise in the third person! Urghhh
  23. Not feeling well today and cried because of this (again). My birthday is a few weeks, I am approaching my thirties, and I still feel the same way about this. It's also going to be 15 years since my first heartbreak, the first one of a long series of heartbreaks and dissapointments. I've also had people who have known me for the last 15 years, and they've stopped telling me "it'll come" because they just see that after 15 years of being told to be patient and hopeful every single year, it just doesn't sink in anymore, it has no effect on me anymore to be honest. One thing that worries me is that I can see myself becoming angry. So, I try to divert my attention to school, reading, writing because these are things I genuinely enjoy and feel good at. I don't understand why I can't get better than the shitty men who have treated me like I was not a human being. I don't want to change who I am, I have a lot of respect for who I am as well and I would never tolerate anyone making me feel less than a human, never. "It's their loss". Yes, it's their loss but it still gets lonely at the same time. I was more hopeful when I was younger. I was not expecting my adult life to be so difficult romantically speaking, and I certainely did not expect that all of those women and friends who'd tell me that I'd have a hard time finding a man would be right. I was so motivated to prove them wrong. Unfortunately, I can't. When I think about my love life, I sincerely feel like I am looking for a needle in a haystack. I really feel like my case is lost.
  24. Sooo. considering that I don't have writing buddies, and that I need accountability when it comes to writing, I joined the Academic Writing Club. I'm taking a chance on this, to see if it would work. has anyone tried this before?
