A friend of mine has this Bill Murray meme as her Facebook profile picture and it cracks me up every time. There’s a collective thesis angst virus going on with my PhD colleagues. It seems that sometimes being a PhD student is the only thing defining what, how and who we are, and there are no other defining factors. But sometimes we need to detach ourselves and just be us, as individuals who we were before our thesis project. With the words of Fight Club, ‘I am not my PhD thesis’, I am awesome.
