Hear ye, hear ye ...
Two announcements for the students of grad (and those who love them, or love to hate them, or hate to love them ...):
1. The wonderful and talented styleygeek (who also has incredible hair) has posted the Carnival of GRADual Progress ... aka the first grad student-centric carnival. Go! Read! Weep! Laugh! Cry! See god!
2. A wee but wonderful group of us grad student bloggers have been using each other as a support group for goals (or sometimes we support less and urge, kick in the asses, push more). We wanted to open the group up again for new members. We prefer it to remain for grad students only at this time (but we really encourage our beloved faculty friends to start their own group - we've found it super helpful!!!) as it helps us to keep focused on theses, dissertations, etc. I personally find that it is a good fit for people who find it hard to get/keep motivated due to depression, major obstacles, life, lack of support, etc. That is, due to my own insecurities, grad students who have NIH grant funding for life and 37 pubs already may want to form their own group :).
If you are interested, email me!
edited to add: due to so much interest, the group is now full. If you are still interested, we can put you on a waiting list :)
