On No But Really, Do 1 Thing

My 1 Thing last week was to ask for a grad school recommendation...and I did it! Even though sending a simple email somehow took me five hours! I realized during my procrastination process that my dread was due to the fact that the professor had wanted me to go to grad school in her field, and I am applying to grad school in a somewhat related yet different field, and I thought that she was going to question that decision. But she didn't! So now my 1 Thing is to get started on my personal statements. My plan is do one a month, every month until December....hopefully that should make it less horrible.

On 1 Thing Is Gonna Melt All This Stuff

@Beaks Thanks for the tips! You totally caught on to my plan.... ask people to write letters for me so that I'm shamed into writing my own personal statements.

On 1 Thing Is Gonna Melt All This Stuff

My 1 thing for this week is to email a professor who has volunteered to write me a grad school recommendation and ask her to write me a grad school recommendation. Ughhhhhh why is this impossible. I didn't apply to schools last winter because I didn't get my act together and didn't think about requesting recommendations until it was like a month before the deadline, so now, even though it is spring, I am determined to get this done. Plus she is currently on sabbatical and definitely has the time. It still feels like such an imposition, though...

On Figuring Out a Career While Being Married to an Academic

@I'm Brooke! i totally get that. thank you so much for sharing all of this, i don't know too many other phd partners (although i guess i will soon thanks to the google group!) so it was really informative to see how other couples make it work.

@OllyOlly @Daisy yeah, i would be interested to know more about that-did they have an agreement that she would support him financially while he was in school?

On Some Costs Associated With a Relationship

@coupdefoudre I was thinking maybe it was supposed to be kind of like a proposal...a "let's move into together" proposal with keys instead of a ring?

On Calculating the Costs: Breakfast Edition

Ooh, I will definitely try making these. I get so sick of blogs recommending oatmeal as a healthy/affordable breakfast choice because I HATE oatmeal, but these look pretty awesome.
