Piled higher and Deeper (PhD): Comic strip that depicts my Life

In my last post I did a short rant about how infrequent my blog posts are BECAUSE I am trying to finish my PhD. I got a lot of support from all you wonderful friends, which I appreciate from the bottom of my heart. I got so encouraged reading such kind , warm and supportive comments that IΒ  got my act together and decided to do at least one more post before the month of scanty posts (read October) is done with.

In this post I give you a sneak peak into my (PhD) life with the help of PhD comic strips πŸ™‚ Exciting much ???

There is a very well acclaimed PhD comics out there and I got into reading these amazingly entertaining strips when I was not even a PhD student, clearly I only saw the humor in it but not truth as I still went ahead and opt for getting a PhD degree for myselfΒ  ha ha πŸ™‚

Also, these comics are quite relatable to any graduate student out there but for PhDs’ this comic hit home guys! No one understands the psyche of a PhD strudent and struggles and joys of a PhD life better than these people.Β  Before I move on, I must put a disclaimer that in no way I regret my decision of doing a doctoral thesis, it has been a very fulfilling experience so far, with no denying that sometimes you feel lost and underconfident about your decision but such is life and we all go through times when we question our life choices. This doesn’t mean that we don’t see the merit in what we are doing right? So get ready to know more about my PhD life situation and take everything with a pinch of humor, oh and by the way, in the end , I do have outfit pictures I promise πŸ™‚

First off, I (being married) totally attest to the truth in the following strip:-) 7 years for a PhD is a bit of exaggeration though πŸ™‚

Totally relate to the following , and no exaggeration there πŸ™‚

And here we talk about perspectives πŸ™‚

Honestly, I want to deny it but shhhhhh….there is some truth in the following πŸ™‚

Vacation what vacation ? πŸ™‚

I can go on and on but may be its a better idea to give you guys sneak peak from time to time instead of all in one post πŸ™‚

For now I want to say that after going through the PhD cycle of ups and downs , you then decide to constructively distract yourself with hobby that facinates you. In my case that is my blog and interaction with you all facinating and inspiring people.

On this note I leave you with some outfit pictures from last Sunday when I took a break from work, left behind my daypack, walked out of library and posed for the pics while enjoying the drizzle. This is my go to clothing syle for Autumn and Winter: skirts over leggings, it’s easy to style, keeps you warm and ranges from casual to glam, what do you say?

My wearabouts: Skirt: Promod; Top/Sweater: Zara; Watch; Carlo Monti; Bag: Mango; Boots: Catwalk; Legging: H&M

The statues are of Aristotle (1st statue) and of Homer (second statue) , in case you would wonder !
