I know the past three years I have not been particularly active on here but in August it will be a whole decade! since I joined. My life has changed in those 10 years so much, not only in 2008 was I just in my first year of high school I have now graduated with an honours degree in university and started my PhD six months ago. I do not think thirteen years old me made to wear a school uniform that was secondhand and two sizes too big (I remember soon as i could save enough money I brought my own proper uniform) would have ever thought I would have made it. I never assumed I would even go to university as both of my parents did not finish highschool and we did not have a lot of money. Thirteen years old me did love Narnia and coming on this forum, even if I was at times a bit annoying or angsty. I must say though my choice of username was perhaps not well thought out.

Thank you all :)

Dear IlF, I always thought it was really cool you stayed around here for so long. :ymhug: And you're doing your PhD now, fantastic! You were a regular post-er for years and we appreciate(d) your presence here. Btw, I quite like your username. What would you choose now, if you could? Just curious.

Also, I think any of us who began the forum at a younger age naturally had some maturing to do, so no worries there. So glad you have been able to follow your dream. Congrats! Keep us posted as you are able, and we're hoping you can come by again soon. :)

Aaand, congratulations on your entire decade on NarniaWeb! \:D/ Is your PhD focus in pharmaceuticals? (Since I recall that was where you were headed.) If so ...

Voilà! :D ('Though ignore the name on the pocket, lol.)

Congratulations on your impending anniversary, IlF! :D I'm very glad you've stuck around - it's been great to see you grow and mature over these ten years (and I think all of those of us who joined as younger members certainly have some things we would've done differently now - but that's part of growing up on the forum ;)) ).
Congratulations also on graduating from university with an honours degree and starting on your PhD! :D Both of those are wonderful!

I was working in a pharmacy during my gap year and undergraduate degree. I did do a semester of pharmacy and decided it wasn't what I wanted to do, so I transferred to Psychology. I think one of the main reasons was I did not enjoy the pharmacy course, I found a lot of the tutors to be over dramatic about the smallest things during those labs and I become way too stressed.

My PhD is in the area of emotion regulation and emotion regulatory behaviours. I am being vague because I do not remember the forum rules all too well and I am not sure it is appropriate to mention the specific behaviours, for younger members but feel free to message me.

To be honest, I am not sure what I would choose now, I am always hopeless with titles. The hardest part of my PhD proposal was coming up with the names of articles I intended to publish.

How are you Jo and Val?
