One thing that I would like to do with this blog is to detail some of the myths and realities inherent in academia.
These may be things that we may enter graduate school thinking it will be like, only to be confronted with the cruel reality later.
These may be things that our advisors tell us, without understanding that the reality of academia has changed over time.
These may be aspects of graduate school and academia that we are told are noble and true, but may in fact make some of us very miserable even if they are true.
These are the myths and realities of academia, as I see them.
