As the holiday season approaches I am thinking about which journal to submit my paper to, where is is likely to be accepted at a 5000 word count… as well as considering how to get a grant to purchase a new laptop for my fieldwork in the new year… it’s all the first world challenges being faced for now… yet facing fieldwork without a well functioning laptop seems like an impossible challenge.. so santa… please leave me a nice shiny voucher for the apple store under my imaginary xmas tree next week… I have been good all year.. and am getting married on new years eve… an apple macbook pro would set things up nicely for the next stage of my research and Im sure it will also help make wedded life a tad easier too….
