Halloween and Dissertations

October 31st is Halloween. What do vampires, werewolves, and zombies have to do with your dissertation?…

So, what does Halloween have to do with your dissertation?


Do you ever think your university is a vampire sucking you dry as your dissertation stretches out term after term?

Do you ever imagine your committee members turning into a pack of wolves, howling at the moon when you submit a new draft?

Do you ever feel like a zombie walking mindlessly through your dissertation journey?

If so, maybe you need a break! Get a mask. Scare some kids, or give’m some candy… Whatever makes you feel better!

Appreciate an evening of silliness and fun. You’ll be surprised at what a difference taking a little break can make. You’ll feel rested and recharged. And, who knows, maybe you’ll come up with a solution to that nagging problem that’s got stuck if you give your brain a bit of a break.

Happy Halloween!
