I’ve heard from so many people that somehow, magically, things just come together all at once at the end of your Ph.D., even if nothing has worked for years. Of course, I didn’t believe them.
I was wrong.
In the past four months, I:
- submitted a manuscript
- had said manuscript accepted five days after submission
- wrote my dissertation, start to finish, in two weeks
- defended my dissertation
- went on post-doc interviews
- accepted a post-doc position, after agonizing over my options for weeks
Suffice to say, it’s been a bit of a whirlwind these past few months, but, to quote a 90s staple, it finally seems like everything’s coming up Milhouse.
