Nothing worth having comes easy! Grit is where perseverance meets passion. I intend to start journal article number five today. Yin yoga with meditation @warrioroneyoga at 530, then, dinner with the family. #grit #workhard #workhardplayhard #phd #phdlife #phdstudent #phdjourney #phdwriteup #monashphd #drsze #nothingworthhavingcomeseasy #igotthis #rolemodelformykids #rolemodelformyboys #gameon #gameonmoles

I have been losing sleep over this question as I am rewriting my discussion and conclusion chapters of the thesis. What is my contribution to education? I hope what would come out of this thesis is an understanding of how primary school boys learn in literacy classes? What role does technology play in this? I cannot summarise 22 months of thinking, obsessing about this question in one Instagram post. All I know is that doing a PhD has changed me in so many ways. I became a critical thinker and a cynic. I questioned everything and everything. I lost my mind many times by having constant “imposter syndrome”. #bonkers #bonkersalert #phd #phdlife #phdjourney #phdcandidate #phdwriteup #impostersyndrome #nobodytellsyouitsgoingtobethishard #nothingworthhavingcomeseasy #reflection #iamenough #drsze #teacher #boyseducation #primaryschool #literacy #writing #technology

Syn free fry-up. Yep, that is a mug with James Northcote’s 1802 portrait of William Godwin on it. 😍 (My Mam keeps sending me the loveliest little motivational treats - this arrived last week and I absolutely adore it.) . . . . . . . . #slimmingworld #foodoptimising #tea #breakfast #synfree #fryup #swinsta #fooddiary #onplan #yummy #brunch #cuppa #brew #phdlife #workingfromhome #phdwriteup #nearlythere #finalstretch #thursday #motivation

When you're stuck with your research work especially writing up your thesis... you eat. Freshly baked homemade cookies with Nutella and nuts. #cookies #nutella #nuts #phdprocrastination #phdlife #phdmilestones #phdjourney #phdthesis #phdlifestyle #phdwriteup #postgraduatelife

Why I started the PhD? ‘I want change.’ I believe we can change people’s lives with education. I was disenchanted by what I saw with our education system. My thesis, small as it is, to me would be life changing personally and professionally. #iwantchange #banksy #banksyart #streetart #education #educationchangeslives #phd #researchforabetterworld #ibelieve #phdconclusion #criticalliteracy #changeoureducationsystem #savingtheworldonechildatatime #teachingismypassion #loveteaching #lifepurpose #phdwriteup #phdmotivation
