Worries in Wonderland

Phd professorI was at the thesis defense of a dear friend and colleague yesterday and found myself intimidated again by the idea of having to defend my own (rather blatantly non existent) thesis one day.

I wonder if that’s a bad thing.

I read the PhD comics religiously and this one perfectly describes the utter bewilderment that all us Phd students experience on a daily basis.

You know. sometimes I think professors are so cryptic because they don’t want to admit they sort of forgot what it is you were supposed to be doing.

Come to think of it, that probably goes for Zen-masters as well..
