    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...
