PhD week 52: One year in

Well. One year ago, I started my PhD. Since then I done some pretty cool things like attending a weevil taxonomy workshop in Arizona, going to the Southern Connections Congress in Dunedin, and collecting in Central Otago and the Two Thumb Range. I have also become better schooled in some of the key techniques of taxonomic research including sorting, dissecting, and slide-mounting. Overall, I've been enjoying it greatly.

How things go over the next 12 months will be in determining how close I will get to finishing on time. At this stage, everything is progressing nicely in the right direction. Long may it last.
