I didn't want to start repeating myself as all my days have consisted of recently are independently coding! So I've decided to group quieter days together and do a review of the week/project so far on friday :)

On Tuesday I got on with some more coding - I coded 9 videos/trials and started a 10th but i was loosing concentration at this point (theres only so long you can look at infants looking at objects for!)

I also edited a 4 of my previous trials as after a meeting with a member of the research team where we checked my reliability I thought I'd better edit a few things that had been brought up. My reliability had dropped slightly but I'm not too worried as the trials compared had been very hard for both me and the research team and it's made me check my work more and flag up certain things.

On Wednesday I did more coding!

On Thursday I spent a day at the library doing my coding. I actually found working at the library for the day nice as, it separated work and home meaning there was less distraction and it meant coming home actually allowed a nice break from the coding. It was also lovely and cool in the library and I got to spend my break sat out in the sun in the beautiful york campus!

I'm a 2nd year psychology MSci student specialising in developmental disorders. My project focuses around the development attention in infants and if certain maternal strategies scaffold joint attention and how this varies cross culturally in the UK and Uganda.

I'm really excited for the Laidlaw programme by building my confidence through the leadership programme and exploring my passion for research further!
