*GULP*

A friend sent me this yesterday. That little pimple thing is a rough estimation of the impact my PhD will have in pushing the boundaries of scholarship in my field.

Maybe if I team up with a few other PhDs, our contributions will be THIS big -----> .

I’m not sure whether it’s going to trigger my “Eff you, dude. I’m gonna make a difference!” reflex, or my “Curl into a ball! Ego defense mode!” tendencies. We shall see.
