    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...

    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...

    I'm Just Sick Of It

    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...

    The World Just Got Much Bigger

    Okay, maybe I'm jumping the gun a little by saying "I need to finish my PhD."  The truth is I'm finishing my Masters right now.  Five more chapters and I'll be done with the program.  Something strange happened to me over the course of about 200 books...
