Being a post graduate student seems like a good idea in the beginning. That’s before you find your supervisor is always at a conference in Oslo, you simply can’t write chapter three, and your results don’t seem to add anything significant to the broader body of knowledge in your field.
Eventually, you notice that your dog listens to you vent about your latest methodological issue with more empathy than your partner, and your friends don’t even fake interest in your thesis-thingy anymore.
Most disturbingly, your pathetic budget and isolated existence has finally forced you to start buying dirty great casks of wine which you drink alone, in front of your computer.
Take a deep breath (seriously, take a deep breath). Relax your shoulders. Top up your wine glass. And spend some time rejuvenating with your peers at our Facebook Discussion Board.
