I’m a graduate student. I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.
Graduate school: I’m in it–deep in it. And actually it’s fine, pretty fun sometimes, and I could be doing much worse.
For some, it’s a means to an end. For others, it’s a place to kill some time. For all, prolonged woe that may provide years of frustration to vent.
“Graduate School Fantasy”, a new feature/category on YPAA, is for the woebegone, or you, whatever the case may be. These voices, from various made-up names, and inspired by various characters I observe at MIT, channel the consciousnesses of these poor souls. Please give them your sympathy.
