Inverse Law of Lateness

It's a well known fact amongst postgraduate students that the closer one lives to their work, the later one starts the day.

After living in Clondalkin for a while (some miles out of Dublin town) I found myself catching the half seven express bus to arrive before nine, whereas people on or near campus generally come in around noon, then usually go for coffee. It's not just me as well, there are others.

I should point in my defence that the net time spent in office though is roughly the same. Commuters tend to be nine-to-fivers, whilst the rest of us are in til unholy hours of the night, albeit writing blogs.


Like Moses from the grave, I've decided to resurrect the blog.

Of course there can only be one reason for this which is that I am doing my write-up for my masters.

I realise there has been a ton of stuff happened since I last posted but it is too much to summarise in this box I'm writing in (which I have already half filled, why don't they give you more space?) so I won't in entirety. But I am doing a masters now not a PhD and I'm probably going back to the UK in the mid summer.

Should also thanks Aaron McDaid (the teetotal techno-loving Donegalman) for getting me back typing. There is a link to his fledgling blog ...
