Hard but Good

So, I am in the final stages of this PhD. Editing is the worst. I read a tweet a few weeks back that said, ‘Finishing a PhD is like finishing a group project where your partner made a ton of mistakes at the beginning of the assignment. Except your partner is just you 4 years ago.’ Honestly, this is the truth. As I finish, I keep finding things to fix, change, add, remove. It is a painful process, but it is good. There are times when you just want to quit because it feels like you have already written all of this, but now you need to re-write all of it. But you just keep pressing on.
