    Teger.

    New Zealand will have you. Alternatively, you could do what the rest of NZ is doing and go to Australia and earn like $100K being a checkout chick.


    What.

    Mikey, you're a long way off being sucked into the hole of doom.

    Also. You don't want to do a phd straight after honours. Better to get a job as a lab assistant/research tech for a couple of years first.

    Graduate school can have that type of atmosphere, but it's really dependent on you seeking out and working with someone - they're not going to come looking for you. It's good that you're into more bleeding edge stuff, but there's a growing trend right now in the humanities of what I like to call 'distance from subject': more and more people think that the only way you can study, say, African American literature, is if you're black, as white scholars inherently apply their own anglo-centric viewpoint to the subject matter, rendering their conclusions worthless. I think that it's dangerous nonsense, but, what can you do. Luckily History is a lot more conservative than English or Women's Studies, so you see a lot less of it, and it's mostly relegated to African American history, which holds no personal interest for me.

    I'm glad I went to graduate school and I've done well here. But the prospect of graduating is still terrifying. Even with all my 'back up' plans there's always a sneaking suspicion that everything will far apart and I'll be homeless, jobless and dead in the gutter. I'm also in a unique situation wherein I don't have anything to fall back to -- I don't really have a family, and I don't have a support system in place that I can rely on if I don't get accepted into a PhD program and don't get a job offer. While on one hand it places a huge amount of pressure on me -- I'm stressed out about these things pretty much constantly -- I also feel that it drives me to perform better, as I have everything at stake every time I enroll in a class.
