In honor of Labor Day weekend, I thought I’d post something about work and graduate school (or academia).

Inside Higher Education (Gradhacker) has a great article by Danielle Marias about grad student guilt: “Grad student guilt (GSG) (n) is the feeling that a grad student experiences when he/she does any activity that is not related to grad school work and does not make progress on his/her thesis/dissertation (e.g. classes, literature reviews, data analysis, writing).” The article illustrates what GSG looks like in real life, as well as giving some advice on how not working all the time is good. (This sounds a lot like the Christian idea of Sabbath.)
