There are three weeks until I fly to Hong Kong to attend an international conference. I’ve just started creating my conference poster. This is the first time I’ve designed a research poster, and I’ve read many websites on how to make an effective layout for qualitative research.
I’ve got some worries about creating a poster. My data is long transcripts and I am struggling to structure an area for the findings. I’m also still deciding whether to take my poster with me or find a place to print it near the venue in HK.
I am very excited to go to Hong Kong for the first time in five years. Luca has successfully arranged 10 days’ holiday in June and will join me!
Still a long way to go
I’ve received my supervisor’s feedback on the updated thesis structure and analytical categories. There is so much stuff I need to rewrite and elaborate, which made me feel overwhelmed again. I’ve realised that I don’t like multitasking and it always affects my inner peace. But I am glad to get a lot of clarification on my drafts before moving forward and will focus on one important task at a time.
