I really enjoyed my mini-break. (Check out my stories.) It was much needed. Now it’s time to knock out the rest of my ELP so I can defend by the end of April. 267 pages and counting... #dissertation #dissertationlife #blackphds #phdstudent
So even though education isn’t equitable... some feel the need to stack the deck even more in their favor. When you walk into a room don’t you dare feel like you don’t belong.
Empowered women empower women. Still in awe that our participants were so inspired by our presentation, “Overcoming Imposter Syndrome”. So many asked if we can present for other organizations. In April, we are presenting for UD’s Women’s Caucus. @thatsjennwith2ns #internationalwomensday
Walking into Monday like...💃🏽
I disabled my personal account so I could focus on my writing but couldn’t let the day go by without shouting out my loves. ❤️365
Bell Hooks is on my reading list once I complete this degree. #love365

Life is short and I’m ready to move on with my life. I’ve been feeling really stuck and overwhelmed with my research. This week I’m at Dissertation Boot Camp; I finally feel like I’m building some serious momentum. And confidence. I’ll have a full review and reflection once the week is over. #gradschool #phdstudent #dissertation #phdlife #phdstudent #blackphds
The best thing about winter? I don’t want to go anywhere anyway... so fewer distractions. Had a virtual meeting with my advisor today. Half of my work is approved with no edits! Next week I head to Dissertation Boot Camp. My advisor told me to use that time to really focus on my literature review. I applied for Dissertation Write Now (this and boot camp are through our Writing Center). It meets once a week for two hours with required accountability on progress. I’m focused. Home stretch. Can’t wait to walk in May. What tactics are you using to make steady progress?
