Doctoral Program – a journey

At this juncture, I feel it’s time to reflect:

When you first get accepted…cocky optimism

image


Your first semester of course work

image


Prepping for your comprehensive exams

image


Taking your comps and doing the oral defense

image


Depression phase

image


Brief moment of positivity…

image


…quickly followed by Imposter Syndrome (tm)

image


Apathy and loss of hope

image


Crazy rebound determination

image


…and over the hurdle and back to positivity.

Stay tuned for adventure #2: writing the dissertation!
