Oh, my… I am in the middle of my dissertation comprehensive exams. I am working on my essays, and my research books are falling apart! The pages were falling out, the binding was cracking, and I kept random pages on a corkboard. I took advantage of the FedEx office and had my books rebound. I LOVE IT!
You know you are a Ph.D. student when this makes your day! My books lay flat and will stay open. My new spiral-bound book brings me an enormous amount of happiness.
I am finding time to write between committee Zoom meetings and graduate student coursework. I LOVE my job as a full-time Ph.D. student and my research. Following my research is an absolute dream, and I love to talk about it!
