I’m no longer quite as confident that I’ll have my dissertation proposal in the state that I want it by September 1st. But, I think it’s about time I get official feedback on it from my chair. Sigh.
I did a lot of work today, not as much as I would have liked, but I still got a lot done. I’m not sure where my summer went and I’m kind of sad that we’re already heading toward fall. This summer hasn’t exactly been relaxing but I did have a lot of fun at the same time.
I guess the only other thing really on my mind right now is just how it sucks to feel taken advantage of. People do all sorts of things for all sorts of reasons that may or may not involve you, but it sucks to have done a lot of work on something that goes unacknowledged. Maybe that’s normal in academia but it shouldn’t be.
