Day #100: Machinations – “Pressure Sway”
Lots of friends seem to be debating whether to get their PhDs. McD will be finishing a Master’s next month, and hinted that further schooling was a possibility down the road. Kim R and Dr. T both raised the possibility of entering programs much sooner. Jen B., who finished hers a few years ago iterated the downsides (some of which are repeated here and here), but recommended getting one if it’s required in your career. Meanwhile, Kim S., who nearly done with hers posted her mother’s prayer to Facebook: “Lord watch over the grandkids and help Kimmy finish her dissertation, ’cause there’s no money left for her next year and no one’s going to give her any.”
Friends, I will support your decisions to get your PhDs, so long as it doesn’t break up the band.
