Summer.

Okay, all. Last blog post until fall. You have done a lot of stuff this academic year. You have more to do in the future - maybe even...

Proofreading.

Breaking.

I guess there are two ways you can deal with breaking in your graduate studies. You can take a break or the work can break you. Either...

Stretch

You've made it to October. If you are new to the program, you have already struggled with the "Why did I think I wanted to do this?"...
