PhD blues

PhinisheD - a site for when You are sick to death of people asking you "How is your dissertation [or thesis] coming?" (but you really would like to talk about your troubles in finishing -- with anybody except those who keep asking, no matter how genuinely concerned they may be, or may seem to be) and You are not getting the kind of support you need -- from your university, your employer, your family members or friends. Maybe you don't even know what kind of support you need, just that you don't have it! and How to Write a PhD Dissertation, which is actually kinda funny... (via jill/txt)

And since no one knows procrastination better than grad students, new fodder can be found at Steven Johnson's blog. Yippee!

oh but the whole issue takes a new dimension when one's adviser comes up and asks " how is your phd going"? Now that is really sad
