If there's anyone left on the internets late on a Friday afternoon before a 3-day weekend, I have two things to say: I'm sorry that you're not outside and this is what I'm wearing today. The reason I am still shackled to my laptop late in the day is because I have loads of work to do in the next week. An academic schedule is a flexible one, but its flexibility is accompanied by the merciless you-should-always-be-working grad student voice. "Shall we go tubing?" says fun Tania. "How about you finish reading those articles first," says grad student voice. "How about barbecuing in the backyard?" suggests fun Tania. "But don't you want to finish grading that stack of papers?" the grad student voice counters. Worst of all is when fun Tania suggests taking an afternoon off. That's when grad student voice pulls out the big guns, "I bet [insert any other neurotic grad student colleague's name here] has been working since dawn." She's a slave driver, I tell you.
