Theory Of Nothing

or Just Theory

PhD measured in Crush Time

You know how every graduate student has a crush on his/her supervisor?

I had a crush on my supervisor which ran through quite a number of years before it slowly exhausted itself, petering off into very decent respect for the other as well as some occassional eye-rolling at the other’s idiosyncracies which I’m grown to be familiar with.

Then I developed another crush on another supervisor. Uh-hmm. Uh-hmm. Teeheehee.

2 protracted crushes, 1 still running its course – that’s how long I’ve been doing this. And I’m still at Chapter 1, 18,000 words, footnote 164.

  2. Dear Degoose & Calamari,

    It is de rigeur for every graduate student to have a crush on his/her supervisor. I’ll missing out on the complete graduate student experience if I didn’t have one, or a couple, uh-hmm, uh-hmm.
