I finally finished writing my fieldwork report and submitted it!
I created a format for the report in February and entered records into the document over the next three months, to be able to show all my activities to my supervisors. After coming back to England, I started adding more precise information about data and its contextual background.
The report was nearly done on Wednesday, and I spent Thursday reading through it again and making minor alterations. I cannot say that I have any feeling of satisfaction with my work yet; not until I have heard from my supervisors about it.
I now have a little time for relaxing at home, thoroughly cleaning the kitchen and bathroom, cooking meals, taking longer coffee breaks than usual and messaging friends.
My achievements in week 75:
– Completed my 15,000-word fieldwork report.
Goals for week 76:
– Arrange a formal meeting with my supervisors (for the first time in six months) and prepare for it.
– Make sure of my next steps, and break any large tasks down into smaller and more manageable pieces.
