The Dyslexic PhD

But ... I'm European?

I’m a little apprehensive about talking politics here … however:

I’ve struggled a lot over the last few years with labels. Sadly it was only after the last night of watching votes come in that I realised there was one label I held close and didn’t take issue with. 490 more words
