more evidence of procrastination


Top Ten Lies Told By Graduate Students:

10. It doesn't bother me at all that my college roommate is making $80,000 a year on Wall Street.
9. I'd be delighted to proofread your book/chapter/article.
8. My work has a lot of practical importance.
7. I would never date an undergraduate.
6. Your latest article was so inspiring.
5. I turned down a lot of great job offers to come here.
4. I just have one more book to read and then I'll start writing.
3. The department is giving me so much support.
2. My job prospects look really good.
1. No really, I'll be out of here in only two more years.


Oh, thanks *ever* so.


Actually, I've seen these before. Been guilty of 10, 6, 3, and 2.

I'll note that these lies bear a close resemblance to lies told by assistant professors.

In that context, I myself have been guilty of everything *but* #7.

Pretty sad. :-)

Is this what I have to look forward to during graudate school? :-)

10 is bad enough for me. 6-(
