Little by little one travels far. Writing one sentence or paragraph seems so little but that's how papers and chapters and books get written. Take the next step. Write the next sentence. Do the next thing.

I successfully passed my Viva yesterday, (minor amendments). I wrote my thesis in a language & a tradition with which I wasn't familiar when I started the PhD at age 34. For these & other reasons I am proud of myself. Sorry for bragging, but also, you know, not sorry...

Hey, academics, PhD candidates, researchers et al., whatโ€™s the one topic that has nothing to do with your area of expertise but about which could rave for hours?

Hereโ€™s the video of me getting my PhD from UO and my poor adviser having to rangle me into the hood. She said I had to walk and wear robes, she just didnโ€™t specify they couldnโ€™t be over a T.rex costume.

When writing your thesis, do you have separate chapter documents and compile them later or one master document to work on? I don't know which would be easier with formatting and referencing software... ๐Ÿค”

PhDs are really just a (long, expensive) lesson in multitasking

Spent time free writing today. The last line I wrote was: "After 6 years of PhD study, there are no good answers. I kind of knew that from the start, but for some reason, at this moment, it makes me a little sad."

Bad writing precedes good writing. This is an infallible rule, so donโ€™t waste time trying to avoid bad writing. (That just slows down the process.) Anything committed to paper can be changed. The idea is to start, and then go from there.

Imposter syndrome. In academia when you are among (*seemingly*) confident experts all the time it really doesn't go away. So the goal isn't too abolish it, it's to learn to manage it. What do you do to deal with imposter syndrome?

When I got to Stanford, I never thought that my PhD journey would end with me choosing to receive my master's degree instead. But as I reflect on how excited I am for the future, I know that I made the right choice. You don't need anyone's permission to change your mind.

Had a paper published? Make sure you have a celebration. Tell people. Have a morning tea/coffee. Bake a cake. It's a big achievement. And it's important to mark your achievements.

Dear PhD candidates and academic Twitter users, help needed! What was the support initiative at Dept or School level that helped you the most during your PhD? Thank you!

How cute is my PhD workstation!? And yes, my ancient laptop is being held up by a thermos ... I really need to sort that out.

This poster is so important!! PhDs can be tough and get you down a lot of the time... important to remember to take time out and reflect on your work! One of my aims during my PhD is to enjoy the science as much as possible ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ
