things i’ve learned this year

Graduate school is not the place for people with allergies to bullshit because almost everything in graduate school is bullshit. Or maybe just my program. Whatever. Nothing but bullshit.

    It’s not just you.

    Totally not just you. The closer you get to the end, at least in my experience, the more apparent the bullshit becomes. You see the ways you’ve been betrayed by a system you didn’t understand, by a false consciousness about what it was all supposed to be about, by the pettiness of individuals. But then you’re at the end, and it’s good to be at the end (and you’ll get there!), because the end, at least, isn’t bullshit. It really is an end, even if it doesn’t mean what you thought it would at the beginning.
