We hope that everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving, whether that meant flying home to see family, staying in with your friends, or just having the day off from work. This year, this is what we were thankful for in grad school.
Kaitlin: Being Canadian, the only difference about this upcoming Thursday is that there is an abnormal amount of football on for a weekday. Thankfully (heh), we can be thankful all year round! I’m thankful for people sharing their successes, failures, tools, and tips about their grad school experience. Whether through blogs, books, or over beers with friends, listening to the diverse experiences of others provides us with different perspectives and lets us know that we aren’t alone in this process.

This has probably been the most stressful year I’ve ever experienced in a personal way- throughout it I had everyone rooting for me. I’m truly thankful that they were there for me.
