all but dissertation


she’s a handsome woman || panic! at the disco


There was a woman and her child. Both were doomed. Both would die. I could either save one or lose both. I chose the child. It was… it was the worst thing I’ve ever had to do in my life. Worst thing by far.

Starting a podcast/eventual nonprofit organization with an executive board consisting of three people who are all working on PhD dissertations and job-hunting at the same time may not have been my smartest move.

Ridiculously embarrassed about my stats today so I’m not even going to post them.

Been sat slaving away at my dissertation all day and haven’t even done 1000 steps. Didn’t eat much either cuz my housemate and his girlfriend came home and they love to judge whatever I eat so I feel really shitty.

Got to sleep now ready for travelling to my parents tomorrow.

Night guys xo

Perhaps it would be more accurately phrased as Obi-Wan has spent all morning giving a dissertation regarding why Vader should be listened to, and how Obi-Wan in particular should be the Jedi to accomplish such a task.

obi-wan is a tired college kid tryin get that Ph D, give him a break

I literally woke up this morning wi murder on my mind BC killing is stalking is A Thing that is being passively consumed by Het Devils & is being not critiqued for its toxic content
Y'all will write a fuckin dissertation on how Steven universe is problematic BC of its Liberal Content but will react wi complete apathy towards a show that demonises & sexualises queer male attraction uh yeah ok

Also advice to all dissertators out there:

My therapist told me on DAY ONE of therapy last Spring that I needed to stop thinking of the dissertation as some delicate, perfect thing I needed to linger over every detail of. Instead, she said to think of it like running through a forest on fire: no time to stop and ponder over details, just get through it.

Best advice ever.


i did it y’all. i handed in my dissertation today!! i’m done my masters degree!!!!!! my dissertation title is: Racial Dis-Identification & Reshaping White Identity. it’s basically about why white people like Rachel Dolezal (also white people who claim to have descended from Cherokee princesses) feel the need to try to dilute or disguise their white privilege and how harmful that is to oppressed groups. i also outline what i think is necessary for a positive (read: anti-racist, anti-colonialist, anti-oppressive) white identity. it ended up being about 10K words but once it’s marked and returned i will post it somewhere if anyone wants to read it!!
