Just to remind me that it can always be worse…

Conversely, my paper writing’s not going badly. I have a whole bunch of alterations and things still to do, but at least it’s cohesive. We’ve set a new deadline for next Wednesday, and I must say it feels much nicer being able to countdown to a deadline in days rather than hours. I suspect I might spend a lot of time on this at the weekend. Although, of course, that depends how much I can get done in the meantime.

    The funniest part is, it’s not as if I don’t cover my own writings in red ink from time to time!
    Ah, but it’s necessary. I’d rather be criticised by someone I already know, than someone I might one day apply to for a job.

    It’s funny… Being a postgrad seems to be a bit different over there in the US. Where I am, unless you have some incredibly good reason, you either finish within 5 years, or not at all!

  3. That is a good Ph.D comic there. Sometimes writing a paper is very much like that, even when everything seems right.

  4. I remember that one, although the one from yesterday (about sigma > tgrad) made me smile because that’s what I felt I would have been going into with graduate school.
