About This Blog

This blog grew out of my desire to document all that is good, bad, and unholy about the dissertation writing process. It's a frustrating experience at the best of times, so I've heard, and there's no pretensions to excellence at least as far as this blog is concerned. I can't afford actual psychotherapy so instead there's Blogger. Here I'll detail my progression, regression, and (many) transgressions.

Poverty: Lacking in something you need or want whether you know it or not. This is not necessarily rooted in monetary concerns (that's assumed).

Principles: Self-righteous condescension, misanthropy, rigid fashion protocols, unreasonable expectations.

Delusional Happiness: Whatever it takes to convince me that I'm happy, functional, and that this process is worthwhile. I often find this source of 'delusional happiness' on tap, served by the pint.

Style: Cite my life. My style guide for grad student living.

I cry, I commiserate with colleagues, I thought I'd make it public.
