From LJMU to UCC
Okay, I have been really quiet over the last few months, a lot has changed…
First, I must say, I no longer live in the United Kingdom, I’m now over the water and down a bit from my former stomping grounds. I have relocated to Cork in Ireland, and I must say it’s a lovely city. I moved down here as the lovely people at the University Collage Cork offered me a fully funded PhD. I will get on to what the PhD focuses on a little later, I promise there will be some science posts on here eventually, I don’t plan to ramble too much today. I have moved into a lovely house on a hill and am living with 3 Geology PhD students who are all very kind.
I have fallen in love with Ireland, it is such a friendly and unique place, additionally, I am pleasantly surprised on how close to home it is, not just geographically. Cork shares many characteristics with Liverpool, its a friendly and funny city full of great food, interesting people and places. The flights to and fro are not only short, around 35-60 minutes, but also very cheap. Which means I wont have to be away from my friends and family back in Liverpool for too long. My family and girlfriend have been a great help over the last few weeks and I can not praise them enough for all the help, love and support they have given to make the move a smooth and comfortable transition.
