Guys, I'm sorry for neglecting you, but I've been so busy this week ... I just haven't had the time or motivation to sit down and finish any of the posts I've had half-written for a few weeks.
So instead of looking for a new post in this space, go check out the latest postacademic blog ... Chronicles of a Recovering Academic.
Written by a social science Ph.D. candidate in the Midwest, there are only a few posts so far, but what's there is good. Zie has some interesting posts about the reactions of hir advisor and colleagues to hir decision to leave (hint: they're about what you'd expect), and an introductory post about why zie entered grad school in the first place (a post I've meant to write about myself for the last, oh, year or so...)
So until I'm back in the saddle with new content, go check out the new blog and leave a comment!
And remember - always remember - you are not alone in this. :)
