Long-term readers will be aware that I am not good at summer.
Today, I will mostly be ranting about the use of graduate earnings to evaluate how good a course/university is.
It seems that people have a lot of pre-existing ideas about what someone with a PhD is, does, and wants, when we’re actually a pretty diverse lot.
I’m almost at the end of week five of jobsearching.
Academic Twitter is abuzz about an article from The Guardian that suggests 'serious academics' don't do social media.

It’s two weeks today since I submitted my thesis.
I submitted my thesis this morning.
Well, submission day seems very close now. I may actually have to start considering which pub(s) to go to that evening.
As it was a three-day conference, I saw TONS of papers, so as ever, I’m going to talk about a few that I could particularly relate to my own work, and that doesn’t mean that the other ones I saw weren’t awesome too.
