I hate Mondays

The latest feedback from my advisor (may he live forever) is less than inspiring or confidence-inducing.

Why can't I manage to communicate on paper all that I have bundled up inside my head?

Why is it that everyone whom I ask to read something either a) doesn't or b) says it's fine and there are no errors? Apparently anyone who has read this for me "obviously is not familiar with standard scholarly procedure."

Excuse me - I'm going to go look for a teddy bear. Sorry such a downer of a post...

From personal experience, few people who are willing to read something for you are actually willing to EDIT it. They somehow think that if they find a mistake it is finding fault with you, and they don't want to do that.

But once you find folks willing to edit, you've found gold.
