EdD (and college) life is my mom telling me “We have all year to think of an idea for your project, don’t worry. I’ll help.” (dissertation) My mom has no idea what I do for a living, but she is in my corner. It helps.

TFW you're on parental leave, but simply can't ignore all those Latino, black, & students asking you to be their honors thesis advisor and/or asking to participate in your research. I can't say no when they feel they have nobody else to turn to.
