As the stereotype goes, grad students are broke. That, and constantly talking about their dissertations. I’m here to tell you about how to improve the former (your brokeness) so that you can focus on the latter (your thesis). We all know I love thrifting, but recently, my thrift stores started to price their clothes like museum-worthy, abstract art. Why else would they try to sell an old shirt for $15.99?
Thus commenced my foray into the goodwill bins. I came armed with gloves, a thick mask, and a can-do attitude. This was mostly for fun, but I found some amazing pieces for a little under $1 each.
Some people in my religion cover their hair once they get married with a hair scarf. I wear them as accessories, but the history is interesting.
Overall, I’m thrilled with what I found, especially for a total of $10.92! Something I’ve started doing is taking the clothing that I don’t wear anymore and leaving it in a bag in the alley labeled “free”. I no longer want to donate to corporations that mark up their clothes so much, especially since now, people who need them the most can’t afford them. It makes me happy knowing that instead, someone will be getting it for free!
I started my doctorate in clinical psychology in fall 2020.
A google search revealed that there are no current grad school blogs for psychology students.
Anyway, I happen to know a girl who wants to document her journey to getting a doctorate (spoiler: it's me).
Welcome. Hope you stay awhile!
