I knew I'd lose it so I put it in a safe place, and now I can't remember where it is.

Well, after all the crit went pretty well. The powerpoint got tidied up and the rest of the presentation went fine. It surprises me how easy the crits are here. No-one is devastatingly rude about projects or deliberately provocative as in England. You get clapped at the end of your presentation and then they say nice things, even for projects where there really hasn't been that much progress or where the group has clear problems.

Altogether not as tough and in fact slightly disconcerting; although it is nice that you don't get demolished, in fact it is more useful to have criticism, however harsh, than the gentle words we get. I almost wished that we were told that we hadn't done enough work or were barking up the wrong tree. Another cultural difference, I am told.
