The process for trying to get myself to this conference in Canberra is so dispiriting that I almost don't want to go now. Faculty have money, but I can only use it to attend one conference in my entire candidature. Institute have no money. Supervisor got upset when I suggested using research funds.
Also, I've been struggling with working out my conference funding allocation for the last week. Am I correct in thinking that "HDR candidates will be entitled to a single allocation of up to $3,000" implies we are only allowed to attend one conference and get up to $3k paid for? Because other people are suggesting this isn't what this means.
@byttyrs my friend did a cool art project about this where she made a tapestry featuring five women who pioneered computer programming
I am now the proud owner of a second spinning wheel. This one is broken and bits of it are rusty, but @cefiar reckons he can fix it. It'll probably be better than my current wheel if it comes good.
I finished the second wrister last night! And although it's gonna be warm for a few days so I won't need to wear them, later next week it's going back to winter temps and I'll be grateful for some extra warmth #knitting
