Life, (or the Lack thereof) in academia!
I know I am supposed to be using this space for 'incubating' a business idea, but this is something I HAVE to share with everyone. A day in the life of a postgraduate! Hell, I could possibly get in touch with Jorge Cham for this entry!
So, I am sipping coffee, surfing the net, gathering my daily dose of news, RSS feeds and webcomics when a friend from India pings me on gTalk (equivalent to a nudge on MSN and a buzz! on Yahoo! for the uninitiated. Yea, I use all three. I suck!)
Manu (henceforth M): Ahem!
Me (henceforth S): Morning! :)
M: Is it done?
S: Its due...
S: Tomorrow :(
M: Will it be done?
S: Let's hope so!!
M: And marriage?
S: What marriage???
M: Marriage proposal? Proposal to spend the life? Together?
S: DISSERTATION PROPOSAL!!!! GAAAHHHH!!!!!!
Let me just say, a status message on gTalk which says "Day of the Proposal" on February 14, is not a good idea!
