Here's my dissertation to-do list from last week. It's basically my own crazy wall (more here), on a clipboard.
More evidence of dissertation-induced insanity:
When I woke up in the morning and looked at it again (and tried to explain it to Erin), I realized that the graph made no sense, and the process I had used to create it was completely bonkers.
I'm going to get through this thing. But after the defense, I think I'm going to need some serious mental detox.
Moral of the story: friends don't let friends do PhDs.
