I’m Sarah: a full-time doctoral student with three years of school down and an undetermined number left to go (but most likely just two more). I live in a cozy 2-bedroom apartment with my husband, Nick, our two cats, Bailey and Matilda, and Nick’s collection of 3000 records.
I try hard to keep a good balance of nurturing my creativity, focusing on my physical well-being, and maintaining close relationships while putting as much as I can into school so I can get as much as I can out of it. This is not always easy. I am most successful in doing so when I am keeping track of what I’m doing, whether it be in a personal journal or sharing with others.
This leads me to the purpose of this “Anything but Academia” endeavor. It provides an outlet and motivation to keep me talking about and doing things other than reading scholarly journals, writing scholarly papers, and spending far too much time playing with statistics software.
