Dear Green PhD,
I’m sorry. I’ve not really paid you much attention in the last six months and I’ve totally neglected you in the last two.
I’ve been so busy worrying about and trying to finish my PhD that I really didn’t know what to say to you. I thought better to ignore you than suffer the uncomfortable silences of two months of posts.
But I know what the problem is.
We came together a year after I started my PhD. Researching and writing my thesis has been hard work, though enjoyable, and you offered me moments of light distraction to reflect. However, the deeper my relationship with my PhD became, the longer the distance between our moments together.
It wasn’t you.
It wasn’t me either.
With my PhD now close to completion, it’s just that “you and me” has run its course.
Yes, I am breaking up with you.
It’s time for me to move on and make a fresh start.
All the best,
