Today, I am thinking about Northcentral’s Commencement which will take place June 9 (next weekend). Everytime I watch the video from last year’s ceremony, I tear up.

I have been in the PHD program for 3 years and 9 months. I found that summer is the worst months for me to study. My kids are at home all the time. they could not find a summer job due to the bad economy. Even the volunteer positions were filled before June… I am being distracted all the time… I need to start going to Starbucks and do work. Hopefully, it will be more productive.

I enjoy your site. Everytime when I am discouraged, I go to read your blogs.

Please continue to share your wisdom.
