So my former thesis advisor showed up at the conference and came to my talk. Since then, we’ve been joined at the hip like popular mean girls. She’s the popular one because she’s at Yale and she’s the guest of honor. But we end up gossiping and laughing like crazy all the time and I’m sure it all looks totally middle school.
An attendee at the conference gave us a questionnaire that was so poorly worded and confusing that I immediately felt like a bad student who is failing a quiz. The thesis advisor, on the other hand, started correcting the questionnaire and writing mean comments in the margins. This brought back all of the heart-warming memories of how she used to do this to my papers back in the day.
It was a truly shitty questionnaire, though.
