Am I supposed to kind of hate my dissertation topic by now? If I don't, does that mean I'm not working on it hard enough (maybe)? I'm doing it wrong? Maybe it's a phase and it will pass.
Making progress. Learning new stuff from my data. Feeling horribly inadequate when watching tweets fly by from another doctoral student dissertating on how scientists use blogs.... (holy moly how many scientists did she actually interview? hundreds? cray-cray... or am I a hater?)
Working on it every chance I get - taking a morning off every week. Staying up late. .. I will have to add more time off. If only we could afford more childcare!
