Back in Scotland
I’m finally back in Scotland, after my all too brief Caribbean adventure, and will be submitting my M.Phil dissertation in less than a month.Very exciting times.This is also a sad time since I will soon be saying goodbye to St Andrews.I begin my PhD at ColumbiaUniversity in September, which I am eagerly looking forward to.And while we’re on the topic of grad school, there is a great discussion over at Philosophy, et cetera on Getting the Most out of GradSchool.The post is actually from last month, but it is definitely worth reading (especially for those who will be beginning their graduate studies this Fall).
Today my self-esteem hit an all time low when I stumbled across an argument proving conclusively that I don't exist. I’m quite distressed. This probably explains why my jeans are so loose-fitting. What’s equally upsetting is that I learned that non-existence does not exempt one from local or federal taxes.
