Doing a PhD
I was on a bit of a self-help improvement kick at the end of 2017, so I wrote this post to motivate myself to try to live my best academic life in 2018.
Attempting to make sense of my new, self-motivated learning environment. Still trying to work out all the kinks.
I recently participated in a series of posts where PhD students around the world and from many different disciplines answered questions about the reality of PhD-ing.
A series on the topic that inspired my Master’s thesis and my current research interests.
