How it went down

Amazing to find that Jorge Cham of Piled Higher and Deeper (PhD) Comics was listening in after I got engaged.

He aptly intuited my adviser's response to the news.

Her congratulatory gift to me: an end-of-February deadline for three dissertation chapters.

I long for those days when women took six months off work to plan their weddings. Much as I would like to revel in the thrill of being engaged and the beautiful intricate details of wedding planning, academia prefers that I be a brain on a stick.

I love PhD Comics! Definitely wishing that I could take time off for wedding planning too. There seems to be an awful lot to do...
