I haven’t officially been a student since March last year, when my candidature lapsed; I’m a part-time research assistant now. Over the last 12 months I technically haven’t been allowed to stay in the shared postgrads office, but Kim somehow had managed to organise for me to stay in there on one of the free desks. Since the beginning of this year, the calls from the admin staff for me to move out have intensified, with new PhD students starting and being allocated to desks in the office. So today I have finally given in and moved two doors down to room 134 sharing with pjrm. My new number here is +61-3-9905-8673.
