    Close To The Death Of A Dream (or Nightmare)

    I have been working on my PhD since 2006 and have managed to get through most of it doing well. My grades were very good, I lived through comps and I survived a Practicum and Internship. However, I have outstanding paper work from both and can’t get my act together to put in...

    I Had So Much Problems and Lost So Much Time!

    I have just started my third year of my PhD research. I had so many difficulties during the first two years. I started my PhD working on a topic that I didn't choose, I wasn't good in it, it was not interesting, and the worst of this was the director, he was unable to understand...

    Delayed Pragmatism

    After four years of perfectionism and loads of procrastination, I am now about to loose it all. I hope not, but it is easy to just have another slipage. So many things got on my way and so many times I failed them and myself. So many times I was defeated by technology, health...

    The World Just Got Much Bigger

    I'm Just Sick Of It

    I'm in the fourth year of a PhD and I am just totally sick of it. Not in itself, I'm just so ready to move on now, and find out what will come next in my life.

    Do I Let Go?

    I started my PhD in the beginning of 2006. I literally planted myself in the lab for 3 years and in those years I had achieved my goal: to finish all needed experiments and use the final (4th) year for writing the stuff up. During those years life issues happened to me as well...
