i got some unexpected motivation to blog and push to finish my phd
from a great friend this past weekend. she simply pointed out that i have been blogging strong for the past 3 years, and now is definitely no time to fall off. i know things haven't been the best for me the past few months, but that is all the more story to put into this project that literally started out of need for an outlet when the beginning of my phd
was slow and uncertain. once all this phd
nonsense is said and done, this blog will be an interesting read for me and hopefully, it may provide the encouragement to help other students starting their phd
to persevere. the road does get tough, but it's always reassuring to know that triumph is possible.
that said, i will begin one last surge for the next couple months in order to finish my phd
in 2009. i am in a good position to do so. i just need to make sure i keep a consistent discipline about me and a strong work ethic. i have found myself in the last few weeks to be too easily demotivated. one last surge is all it takes. let's get it!!!
