@BlackWidowJola There’s an @PHDcomics about this (can’t find it right now). It’s a graph of how funny the comic is relative to your year in grad school. By the end the graph is on something like too close to reality to be funny. As a side note, I don’t read them anymore because they’re too true.
@BlackWidowJola For me I would say 🙃 1st year: oh god I have no idea what I'm doing 2nd year: ok, I kinda get...nope I have no idea what I'm doing 3rd year: ok i think I know what I'm doing but I'm sure not doing a good job 4th year: ok. I'm doing this. Not sure how well, but imma get this done
