Ahh Milagros when the PhD is in, definitely do that! I am fortunate in that I have some funds saved from doing lots of teaching work over my PhD to sustain myself for the next couple of months until it is in- the PhD alone is exhausting enough, so I can understand you being so tired.
I'm really angry today with my supervisors. They promised feedback by a certain date, and I told them to let me know if they can't make that date, date has passed and I've heard nothing. Common decency would be that if you can't make the deadline then at least let the student know. I'm fed up.
I can't wait to submit and move on. My supervisor was trying to convince me to apply for a fellowship under him, but I literally need to run. Its a toxic environment and relationship. I don't understand why they are getting away with it (well I suppose because no one is speaking up, including ME). I've had promises made that were never kept too, and never an apology. I've had emails ignored for 2 months, and no apology or acknowledgement that they were sent. I just need to ignore the supervisor's behavior for a few months until I pass but I am utterly fed up.
So is anyone else feeling the same way?
Hey Hugh, that sounds really rough. It's really hard for students to speak up about these things given the power imbalance between student and supervisor. It sounds like their inaction is really holding you up, so I hope you can find a way to politely but firmly request that you get the feedback you were promised!
If it's any consolation, I'm pretty mad at my supervisors today too...
