So I had my supervision and guess what. My professor acknowledged my work, but asked me nicely to tidy it up a bit. That was 8 days ago.
If you recall, my latest blog post was about how I abandoned the proposed structure of my first Context Chapter. Well, eventually I put it back. And it looked, well, more or less okay. And that’s how my professor also saw it. More or less okay. One problem is, not surprisingly language. As he put it: you have your blogposts, articles, conference speeches and books on one hand – and then you have your PhD thesis on the other hand.
If you live at the University Campus, attend the University on a regular basis or do your PhD as a Distance Learning Student in a museum environment, it puts you in a mindset. Well, I am nothing like that at all. My life and work is so far away from this world, that it is a miracle that I got this far.
Now in the last 8 days, I tried to tidy up my Context Chapter many times. And I know how I can do it. I just can’t focus enough. So this is something I need to work on.
On a more lighter note, preparation are under way for an exhibition I will be curating next Spring at the Hungarian Museum of Trade and Hospitality. It will be about the history of motor trade in Hungary.
And my volunteer work at the Hungarian Postal Museum yielded a new contract to co-write a book on the history of postal vehicles in Hungay.
Hopefully I can be even more focused in the next few days. We’ll see…
