Although I haven’t actually had my thesis bound yet, I thought I’d celebrate just a little anyway. So I made a video that I hope does a better job of thanking the people who cheered me up, listened to me whinge, or made me laugh while I was doing my PhD than the ‘official’ acknowledgements ever could.
If you had even the tiniest bit of co-present fun with me at any point in the last three years, chances are you’re in here somewhere. If not, it’s only because I didn’t have a photo of you.
Oh, and the music is for Jules and Jaz (who both quite like Missy Higgins), and also Anne (who hates positive, jangly-guitar folk-inspired pop music like this with a passion). Besides, the song is getting so much mainstream radio airplay right now that the day I submitted my thesis will be forever linked to this moment in the history of popular culture. (or, i just like the jangly guitars).
