This is my #gameface: two term papers down, one to go. #phd #phdlife #holyeyebagsbatman #pleasesendcoffee

Sick as a dog and still in the research stage for the second of three final papers due next week, but this makes me feel like things aren't so bad. #academic #published #18thcentury #literature #janeausten #persuasion #napoleon #phd #phdlife

We interrupt your regularly scheduled #gradschool for something very special for #canadian #dressage people like me: D Niro's retirement performance at the @theroyalfair @theroyalhorseshow. #dniro #rawf #rawf2018 #thankgodforstreaming #royaltv #southkorea

Another #happybirthday to the wonderful @keriinkorea! πŸŽ‚πŸΉπŸŽ‰β€

16 pages in and I can barely breathe... #tonimorrison is, once again, painfully accurate. #betweentheworldandme #tanehisicoates #embodiment #phd #phdlife

#achievementunlocked: I'm on a poster! πŸ€“ Today I get to talk about why science and #poetry work really well together at the Modern American and British Poetry Society of Korea's annual #conference. Yay! #yonseiuniversity #ewha #ewhawomansuniversity #gradstudent #phd #phdlife #whauden #alsoverywet #anothertyphoon

Solo and I are of the opinion that #nationalboyfriendday should be more inclusively named. We nominate International Non-Speciesist Gender-Ambiguous Romance Spectrum Life-or-Something-Like-It Partner(s) Day. INSGARSLSLIP(s)D for short 😊

Lemme talk #reallife as an international #PhD student for a sec. Most of the time I forget to give myself credit for all the (frankly, freakin' difficult) stuff that I manage to accomplish every week. Graduate school coursework is hard enough, nevermind living alone in a foreign country to do it. But this week I also presented at a conference for the first time, AND got invited to speak at a second one, AND taught a Korean kid the English ABCs, AND got a date, AND kickstarted a change in my department's policies for the more equitable treatment of international students. That's a successful week by any standards, so why do I feel like crying? I feel so guilty for going to bed an hour early last night (even though I'm sick with a cold and my body clearly needs rest) and for treating myself to a piece of cake (even though I skipped lunch for a meeting with my department head) and for forgetting to bring back-up work to campus today (in case I finished my primary tasks ahead of schedule - which I did). I suspect perspective is the key to getting ahead of all this guilt and anxiety, but how? How can I support and celebrate myself better? #thestruggleisreal #burnout #gradschool #phdlife #selfcare

Flattering photo actually makes me look like I wasn't vibrating with nervousness πŸ˜† #montreal #mcgill #conference #worktrip #gradschool #phd #phdlife #nomadacademic
