Following the bad habit of sharing information about my private life on the internet, here is a quick update about two important events which might interest those who visit my profile. First, as most of you know already, our dog, Thessa has recovered fully after being hit by a speeding car in December 2015. For a detailed story how this happened please see the previous entries of my journal. Thessa is more than 1 year old now, her treatment took more than 6 months, almost half of her life, and cost tremendous amount of money. However, thanks to the support of the Deviant art community and some of its members who generously supported us with donations worth, overall, almost 500 pounds (!!!), we could afford all the treatment that Thessa needed and, since August, she is finally running, swimming, chasing after the ball and recently she even started playing with other dogs! To be honest, I was not sure whether such recovery was possible, I was hoping she will be able to walk but running and playing with other dogs exceeded all my expectations! Thank you very much! Here are some photos from our recent walks :)

This may, of course, sound naive but for me, the story of Thessa's recovery is a very uplifting example of how wonderful the world can be sometimes. Even when you are faced with seemingly endless cycle of failures and bad luck, and my life really seemed that way last year, there is always a chance for a happy ending! 

The second big news is that last Monday, I had my viva and I was officially awarded a PhD! So from now on, I am Dr. Bricksandstones :) I am now working on a project about the role of religion and multiculturalism in medieval crusader states - if everything goes well, I should be able to secure some funding for it but it is not yet certain so please, keep your fingers crossed :)

I have recently been awarded a PhD in medieval archaeology and I am in the process of applying for a post-doc funding concerning the role of religion and multiculturalism in medieval crusader states in the Levant, Greece and the Baltic.
