I love this school already


I don’t know how many of you guys follow Piled Higher and Deeper, a comic by Jorge Cham that is the most accurate portrayal of graduate life I’ve ever seen*, but they’re making a live-action movie of it and it’s screening here at UWO on the 23rd.

How freaking cool is that?!

Also, I’m TA-ing PHIL 2020,  Basic Logic, class this semester, which is pretty snazzy considering we have to pass a logic competencey exam in our first year of PhD and this will do for a good refresher. Shout-out to Dr. O’Rourke for being an amazing teacher and making logic accessible to me, someone who had no intuitive grasp of proofs prior to the course.

Yay!

*examples from UBC: trying to teach correlation to undergrads, explaining what you’re studying, emailing, and “this might as well have been a screenshot of my compy

  1. I LOVE PHD! The prof in the chem lab I worked in always posted the newest comic on the lab door. Most of them were very true from what I saw of the grad students there. That’s fantastic it’s going to be a movie.
