Are you living on the other side of the world from your university and your supervisors?
Or do you just find it hard to maintain your motivation when you’re not face-to-face with your supervisor?
Do you find it a bit lonely with only the cat for company and critique?
Is your internet connection letting you down so you can’t log into to all those wonderful support sites you’ve find?
Well, your worries are over. I present to you…your very own proxy supervisors!
Stand them on your desk, sit them on a pile of books, make them lean against that cold cup of tea that lives perennially on your desk. No matter what time of day or night, they will be there for you.
If you feel tempted to get up and do something else, one glance at their little faces and you will know what they’re thinking: Is that all you’re going to do? Didn’t you just get started? Are you sure using social media really counts as proper use of your time? Hey, can I have some of that cold tea?
