It seems to me that September, and the start of a new academic year, is a more significant mark of the passage of time and the beginning of the new than January 1st.Â This academic year also holds to be more significant than my previous years: working on research and writing a dissertation are the end-moves to a long term project like a PhD. I’m thinking that in order to be successful this year, I need to establish some resolutions and deadlines. Here’s what I’m thinking right now I would like to complete for this time next year:
- Two publications in the pipe-line, one peer-reviewed and one other kind of publication
- Present a paper at an 5th World Environmental Education Congress, one other conference presentation1
- Dissertation submitted and ready to be defended
- Application in for at least one post-doc2, one academic job and one non-academic job
Deadlines after the jump.
