A Parable About the Ph.D. Involving Topography and also Poop

This old but timely (practically prehistoric in Internet time, actually) post was passed on to me by a friend earlier today: The Valley of Shit. I doubt anyone has ever embarked on a quest for a post graduate degree and not walked through one of these so deep it blocked out the sun.

I’m throwing this up Thursday evening as a penance for missing another Wednesday update. [Insert timer here counting down to when I realize trying to hold myself to a MWF update schedule is going to make me hate this endeavor all the sooner]. The friend in question was @mandaYoho (of Twitter), who you should totally be following if you already aren’t.
