Life of a PhD student!

by Aishwarya » Wed Apr 12, 2006 12:04 am

I am doing my PhD and it seems to me that I have been doing the same for an eternity now. Time has come to a standstill. I dont have a bank balance, I dont socialize anymore and here I am sitting in a small room with no windows, infront of a linux system 24/7 either browsing net or debugging code, actually mostly browsing net. I dont go to gym, I live on ready to eats, there is a whole eco-system in my room: Basically I have no life! Worse, I have no qualms about it.

Having said so, let me tell you all the great things I get to do. I get free lunch during the seminars, I get lot of time off ( I basically sleep), and I get free food and I get lot of time off! Phew.. Thats a lot. How many get to do that? Sigh.. I guess just me... I am now a veteran in my school. Like a fixture... students come and go, but I am the one who is ALWAYS THERE.. I am always around. Helping others graduate with their Masters or Undergrad degree... That in itself is gratifying...

Yeah, I am in denial right now... I get it...

Anyways.. to know more about grad life... please do find time and visit

Hi Aishwarya!

A Research is an Individuals Achievement. So just keep on going with your Research and enjoy conducting it. Only then you will find your research interesting. Goodluck with everything.

Life of Phd

by Vijay » Thu Apr 20, 2006 10:28 am

Come onnnnnnnn Ash!

You are already into it! So you got to finish it up by any means. The only way you can do it is by enjoying it, and not in regretting for doing it. Coming to me I have done my Masters in Sweden which was totally research oriented and I know everything about it, reading the articles, criticising, acting like an opponent, thinking independently, lonely life, seminars, presentations etc etc. From my experience I felt the only way to come to an end is by enjoying it. I was almost into my Phd, I was even invited for a position in Phd, but in the last moment I felt it was not matching with my personal dreams. So I left it out. I can imagine the life of a Phd with my close observations, at the same time you should have a passion to conduct research and also to teach youngsters. You have to make a quality decision before entering into that field as I did to opt out because its not matching with my personal dreams. The rest should do...............Goodluck anyways!

Life of a Phd

by Vijay » Thu Apr 20, 2006 2:34 pm

Hi Again!

Iam talking about how to complete a Phd. After completing the Phd its upto you to decide what to do next. The quality of happiness obtained after achieving a Phd is different to an ordinary degrees from my observations. If anyone want to enjoy learning new things all the time then Phd research is the right choice. Goodluck anyways thats all I have to say.
