She’s a real friend. She puts the computer to the side of the desk. She lets me spill buttons everywhere, jar by jar, color by color, picking just the ones I want. Then she tells me that it takes her ten minutes a button, too. Now, she says, I’ll get you an ice cream—you get back to writing. #fabicelolly #dissertating #stitchingittogether

When I can I like to match my notebooks to my research. This picture is especially meaningful because we have a notebook purchased on a trip to Buenos Aires, one of my research locations and bodies of literature, in which I will be taking historical research notes on Buenos Aires, Argentina, and its transnational engagements. The photograph was taken in another one of my research cities, NYC, while doing research in the Schwarzman Building of the NYPL, which itself is at once a research resource and an important part of the landscape of my time period.

Most of my research and writing is done by hand, and I’m always on the hunt for notebooks that fall within the theme of NYC, Buenos Aires, and Paris, though these notebooks only comprise a small part of my collection. I was once told by a colleague that I would have to switch to a computer based system, three years later, I have to say I disagree, part of the joy of doing my research is that I feel like I’m playing when I use my fountain pens and beautiful notebooks, and I need to feel like my work is fun! So, question for the comments, how do you keep work fun and original for yourself?

This week I began copy-editing the last chapter of my dissertation! I also began working on the super long draft of the intro chapter. Although I still need to do more revisions of previous chapters, it feels so good to know that I am getting closer to having that first draft of the dissertation done!! #phd #phdwork #phdlife #gradschool #gradstudent #gradstudentlife #academia #academiclife #dissertating #writing #researching #indigenousstudies #nativestudies #nas #ucdavis #ucd #almostthere #yacasi

When you get out to the country for your marathon writing retreat, and you realize you can’t live without the comforts of home, not even for five days, what do you do? You go to the local Walmart and spend $90 to make yourself more comfortable. #imaybehighmaintenance #helpingtheeconomy #doingmypartforthecommunity #needmyBPC #coffeesnob #creatureofhabit #spoiled #dissertating #phd2018 #fueledbycoffee #writingretreat #getitdone #grad2018 #theywillcallmedoctor #notthatkindofdoctor

I purchased this book through a third party seller on Amazon since it was more affordable. However, I am quite intrigued by the Chinese annotations (or perhaps Japanese?).... 🙄 #phd #phdwork #phdlife #gradstudent #gradstudentlife #gradschool #academia #academiclife #nativestudies #indigenousstudies #ucdavis #ucd #dissertating #thesiswork #indigenous #purepecha #michoacan

“From the ruins, lonely, inexplicable as the Sphinx, rose the Empire State Building” from “My Lost City” by F. Scott Fitzgerald. For the rest of the quote for his poetic retelling of the crash scroll down.

The Empire State Building (begun in 1929, the year of the crash, and finished in 1931, one year before Fitzgerald published his retrospective essay on the 1920s in New York) is an iconic part of the NYC skyline. What is your favorite NYC skyscraper? Let me know in the comments. I can never decide between the Woolworth Building and the Chrysler Building. Did you know the skyscraper was invented in Chicago? More on that, and the competition between Chicago and New York in future posts, but here is the full quote from Fitzgerald.

“From the ruins, lonely and inexplicable as the sphinx, rose the Empire State Building and, just as it had been a tradition of mine to climb to the Plaza Roof to take leave of the beautiful city, extending as far as eyes could reach, so now I went to the roof of the last and most magnificent of towers. Then I understood—everything was explained: I had discovered the crowning error of the city, its Pandora’s box. Full of vaunting pride the New Yorker had climbed here and seen with dismay what he had never suspected, that the city was not the endless succession of canyons that he had supposed, but that it had limits—from the tallest structure he saw for the first time that it faded out into the country on all sides, into an expanse of green and blue that alone was limitless. And with all the awful realization that New York was a city after all and not a universe, the whole shining edifice that he had reared in his imagination came crashing to the ground. That was the rash gift of Alfred E. Smith to the citizens of New York.”

I’ve been seeing lots people on IG document their thesis or dissertation writing journeys and it’s been so motivational! A good reminder to just keep at it with patience, diligence, and a lot of persistence. It helps to know that so many others are in the midst of the same process as me 💻📄👩🏻‍💼
