A PhD in three years? Maybe.

I’m an uneducated housewife.  However, I’m working on PhD-level work (at least, nobody without one appears to be doing what I’m doing, ‘cept me), so there is a small chance I will end up with one anyway.

It’s pretty clear I’ve been struggling quite a bit because I didn’t want to admit the situation was what it was.  It’s hard to accept I might have to work with people whose entire lives are devoted to views and practices regarding education that have directly made my life incredibly difficult and made educating my own children a home-based project, but I’m probably not going to be able to stay on schedule without accepting that it may be what I have to do to complete the mission.

So this is acceptance.  Also, about the only detailed public comment I’m making about Project Y’ this year and maybe next.

  1. Credentialism’s bread and butter are based on people’s willingness to play the game in order to be in the club. Then they pretend those unwilling to do so are less smart when oftentimes you’re smarter than the rest who take out huge loans for the eventual privilege of staying home with their own kids, lol.

    C’est la vie, and best of luck to you as you continue your project.
