Dear all PhD students: Parties are not always necessarily an intellectual competition. You are so smart. We know. It's so totally absolutely soooo damn ok to talk about garbage television. Pls talk to me about garbage television.

A PhD is about learning how to learn. The research you want to be doing 20 years from now probably doesn’t even exist yet, so what you really need to gain in grad school is the ability to dive into a new area, learn, and develop mastery.

The only way you 100% won't get something is if you don't try for it. Apply for that fellowship, internship, or job. Pursue those connections. You never know what someone will see in you or who will give you a chance. Give YOURSELF that chance 💖

"Sometimes academic papers that are so complex you need to reread them multiple times to understand ...are bad writing." This is something I wish I knew/was more sure of as a PhD student when I saw dense-ass papers and thought it was 100% me.

Today I learned that the profit margins of academic publishers are higher than Apple or Google or Amazon.😐 We do all the research, writing and editing (for free), then hand over our work (for free) & they go and make more money than Apple?

I’ve always thought doing a PhD is like a GBBO technical. You know nothing, you’re surrounded by people who look like they know what they’re doing, you have a task(s) to complete with little guidance and at the end you get critiqued by 2 experts

Many PhD students think their project has to be their magnum opus, a masterpiece which will be the best research they ever do. In fact, a PhD is training, to give you the tools for a future research career. Supervisors would do well to remember this too!

If you’re applying to Graduate school this fall, remember to apply for the application fee waiver/reduction if you qualify. It’s a couple more steps in the already lengthy process but it’s worth the extra effort if it’s offered at your desired program!

Just your friendly neighborhood reminder that as you choose a research lab, if you find yourself saying: -how bad can it be -it’s only 5 years -it will be different for me... ...it can be bad (really bad), 5 years is a long time, and it will not be different for you.

How do you know you're doing enough in your PhD? I know I could always be doing more but when should I stop? Other grad students in my lab work longer than I do but I have a husband and try to prioritize exercise for mental health

We all have high points and low points in our PhD. People who were helpful and people who were cruel. Successes and failures. The important part is it’s *your* PhD and you get to celebrate what you’re proud of and leave behind the things you’d rather forget.

I told the cafeteria lady that I’m a student so I could get my discount and she responded with “still?”... I see what type of energy this week is about to bring me 😒

When I call for better in academia, a common pushback response is 'students need to take control of their education'. I think this response is a cop out. BOTH mentors and students need to work together for an effective training environment.

Deciding when to work and when not to work is perhaps the most challenging task faced by a PhD student.

At 2am on the night before I received a scholarship (that I was rejected by 3x) I seriously doubted my capability as a PhD student & considered dropping out. These are the stories the people who pretend to have it all figured out won't tell you.
