Politics with distinction

distinctionIt seems like ages ago that I finally handed in my dissertation but it’s only been two months. Two months of regularly checking my University email account for notifications while second-guessing everything I wrote in it, until today the maring was done, the exam board had met, and I got my final grade: a distinction for the dissertation, which meant an overall distinction for my MA, so those two years of studying and several thousand pounds of fees weren’t wasted in the end.

Anyway, this is just to say thanks to those of you who read and commented on the posts about my dissertation and other degree-related things as you did help me work through my thoughts and come up with ideas in a lot of areas, and all that helped me get to this point. The title – and the opportunity to flog the phrase ‘politics with distinction’ until it becomes devoid of all potential humour and meaning – is all mine though.

Right, time to start applying for next year’s PhD courses and funding…
