Winter Boot Camp

Knows what he's talking about, Yoga does.

Hello dissertators! Long time, no hear! The advent of job application season really threw a wrench into my dissertating, so I followed our group's advice about protecting time for the dissertation and took a break from the blog. However, the apps are mostly in, so now it's time to do some catching up.

Our latest Dissertation Boot Camp was over two very rainy days in December, and we all got a lot of work done as the rain came down!

Sam not only came back from the edge of the abyss after having to do some major changes to his data set, but he also fixed the Writing Center table at the start of the Boot Camp.

As usual, for two days the CGU Writing Center was transformed into Dissertation Central, where people set up camp in the various rooms, spreading laptops, papers, books, and files all around them.

Safety in numbers, Dissertators!

Dissertators used one of the white boards as a reminder to avoid the individual time-killing temptations that usually sabotage their work.

No, "World of Kittens" isn't actually a real website, although it should be. And the Academic Job Wiki is pure evil. If you don't know what it is, pretend you didn't see this. It's for your own good. Trust us.

As with our previous boot camps, this boot camp offered sushi, coffee, snacks, stretch breaks, and opportunities to just talk with other students who feel your pain.

Once again, the bendiest yoga master of all time, Nancy Sassaman, donated her time to come and lead the group in a much-needed yoga break. Thank you, Nancy! Because of the rain, we practiced yoga inside the Career Management building. (Thank you, Career Management!)

Whether you call this position "happy baby" or "dead bug" probably depends on how your latest chapter is going...

Our next Boot Camp is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, February 6 and Sunday, February 7. The boot camps are free, but a $50 deposit is required to hold your space. Keep an eye on your cgu e-mail for sign up dates!
