For the people who told me to read PhD comics…

I’ve already been reading them for two years. This is probably part of my problem.

And while I could generally relate to them thanks to undergrad research, I’m now convinced the artist has a spy camera set up in my apartment. Take today’s comic for example:I read this comic cuddled up in bed exactly like the main character, skimming Google Reader while I decided if I wanted to hit snooze again or get out of bed.

I got out of bed.

    I’m a terrible snoozer. I had to get an alarm app for my phone that allowed me to limit the number of snoozes I could use in the morning.

    That seems to be a daily occurance, but for me this morning, it wasnt my sub conscience…my advisor called my cell phone.

    When my alarm clock wakens me, I engage it in a manly bellowing contest until it silences itself in fear. Usually only takes about an hour. Helps me wake up, since I don’t drink coffee, ya know?

    Probably about every second one I read an realise it’s true (partner of a phd student)the rest of my life is xkcd.

    I posted that thought (that phd comics has a camera in my apartment) to facebook a week ago. I’m more sure of it now.

    That FLEW through the physics department yesterday as we all had that exact morning… something about Mondays in autumn when there’s a TON more to do than there was during the summer…
