Ph.D. students: they call us dreamers, but we’re the ones who don’t sleep

Trouble sleeping? Maybe we’ve procrastinated for too long and it’s catching up with us and so we have to burn the midnight oil and make a sprint of our writing. Maybe we’ve been going through some emotional hurdles during lockdown and have been finding it difficult to sleep. Maybe you’ve taken some time out of your usual writing schedule to help a friend out. Maybe the imposter syndrome has gotten a strong grip on us and we’re feeling stuck with our writing.

Turning 21

I just turned 21 a few weeks ago. In the couple of weeks leading up to it, I kept forgetting it was coming up, seriously just went right over my head. I can’t tell if it was my subconscious trying to block out the fact that I’m getting older, that its time to be an adult, be more responsible, that soon my parents will kick me out. Or that life is so fleeting, passing by so, so quickly like how dare she!... Seriously what’s the deal?! I’ve realized recently that I haven’t been making the most of my life. A lot of you may feel the same way, so what can we do to feel like we're actually living? Writing it down in this blog has actually helped me to self reflect, to realise that I actually have done a lot and have a lot going for myself. Hope this inspires you as a reader.
