Vellichor Afternoons

I like trip-hop, anachronism, cats, both coffee and tea, the sound of rain on a tin roof, antique keys, pop culture as a substitute for religion, theatre, photography, Oxford commas, and, of course, reading.

Getting What You Came For: The Smart Student's Guide to Earning an M.A. or a Ph.D. - Robert Peters When I started grad school, I really felt like there was some sort of instruction manual that I missed getting a copy of. As it turns out, there was no such thing, and most of us are just faking our way through as best we can.

This would be that missing book I longed for so heartily.

If you are a graduate student in ANY discipline, or are considering applying to graduate school, go get this book. Do not pass go, do not collect your proverbial $200 dollars. GO GET THIS BOOK.
