I had a part in so many research projects I was getting them all mixed up, and now they all merged into one.
I had to conduct an interview in the next five minutes and I had not even had sight of the interview schedule. I couldn’t remember if someone had passed this on to me. I blamed my time away in Manchester (twice up and down the M6 in the past week), and endless meetings (so long that you couldn’t recall eating the lunch provided).
Then I questioned why I was involved in this at all. Wasn’t it the responsibility of the PhD students to gather their data by themselves?
