I wonder how your family and friends felt about you deciding you wanted to do a PhD? 

Yeah they were quite supportive really. I think the third year was the worst because I was so fed up with it and in such a foul mood the whole time, everyone couldn't wait for me to finish it, but no, they were quite supportive and no-one was like 'oh you shouldn't do it' you know as long as you enjoy stuff just get on with it type thing.
