"Put an empty fifth and some vomit on top of a good test grade and send that in."
Advice on what should comprise my personal statement.
like, i forget always, in times of stress, that if i fail, it’s not the end of the world. life is scary. i might be moving to a new city in nine months. by myself. i might not. but at the end of it all, if i’m in, if i’m not, life isn’t over. if i never get my PhD, i won’t be sad forever. you can’t be sad forever. i keep a notebook of things to remember at times like this, and there’s this bolded part “don’t plan on failing.” you still have to try. don’t plan on failing. don’t plan on failing. don’t plan on failing. life is okay. it’s pretty good. don’t plan on failing.
