The thesis distraction thread
Let's face it, I'm going to need this thread for the rest of the year (hopefully only the rest of the year).

Today's problem is squeezing a watermelon through a spanner. One of my chapters (due tomorrow) is somewhere between 1000-4000 words too long, depending on how much of the Appendix you want to argue really should be in the chapter. 

:babypout:



So; otters.

"You know what uranium is, right? It's this thing called nuclear weapons. And other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium. Including some bad things. But nobody talks about that."

Astronomy & astrophysics. I'm in my "last year" or whatever, and trying desperately to escape. I need to finish some more analysis and then write.

You?

Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.

By "Last Year" does that mean if you don't finish they kick you out?  My ex was under constant threat of that.  She finished, but it took her a long time.

They're gonna stop paying me as much, so I'm under threat of having a much tighter budget than usual. I'm going to compensate by being a uhaul lesbian.

I remember when my funding got cut off, in grad school.

I got a part-time job delivering pizza.  My wages just barely covered my rent.  My tips became my food.

You should try being a YouPorn lesbian.  That pays better.

If my budget gets tight enough, sure. I have truly fantastic tits and have been getting very good at snapchat.

Ha ha, I wouldn't have believed that I could fall out of love with Astronomy and Astrophysics, but grad school did it to me.  Luckily, the love came back after a few years, when joy could once again take the place of stress and increasingly idiosyncratic jargon-papers. 

Otters, though cute, aren't much of a distraction for me.  I did bring the little dog out to the observatory many times, just to watch her go nuts over the hantavirus-filled field mice scurrying under the wooden walkways, and listen to her bark at the coyotes, and sometimes the cows over the fence.  Otherwise she was a pretty shit helper though.  She would be all bundled up in blankets while I had to go out in -25 Celsius to check the photometer positioning between runs, no encouragement, just blank stares or oblivious sleep.
