A PhD is hard – so what?
Lately, I’ve been at a loss for inspiration for a blog post. I’ve hit a slump in my PhD research. Basically, that’s a diplomatic way of saying that I’m doing a part that I don’t like and it’s hard and I’ve lost some motivation. I’ve been cleaning data and getting it ready for analysis. A process that is soul-destroying, time-sucking, and makes me question everything in my life from this research to relationships to my meditation practice and what my life purpose is overall. T
