I was already married when I defended my dissertation. But he had an issue with the acknowledgments page. I thanked his dumb ass and my children. He didn’t like the boys part. He didn’t understand why I even acknowledged them.
He literally said, “Why did you thank them. They didn’t do anything. My name should be the only one on that page.”
He mentioned it multiple times in front of family and friends. I think once he got enough looks of disgust from people, he stopped.
One would think common sense would have stopped him. But nope. Narcissistic to the end.

Lol. Finished mine just to piss the Ex’s shitty mother off. Got the TT job to put her in her place. Got tenure to shut the fucking Ex’s mouth permanently.
The sheer will of strength to finish the PhD program and dissertation could not be replicated at this time. So, if anything, I can say the silver lining was being able to use my spite in a super productive manner.
I miss working while travelling.
Day 1 of 100: I’m so rusty when it comes to studying! Why is this so hard?
Old books, choral music and tea.
It’s a mess, but it’s where I work now. Trying to get this lit review written.
Just like that, off to Boston to present a conceptual paper on consumer behaviour and exoskeleton utilisation!
Most days I have a hard time picturing ever graduating.
An advisor’s gift 🎁⭐️💕from my undergrad days. Today, i wore it in celebration of our co-authored work. Pictured is it bookmarked on a page within a book 📚 I am reading on concept analysis.
Meaningful conversation tonight - much more validating than quoting movies for hours on end.
