Reflections on my PhD are posted on my Facebook page. Here is an example.
Oftentimes we become so engrossed in our studies we need time to do other things. In 2011, many parts of Alabama were struck by a tornado.
I took the time to volunteer for the clean-up. Doing volunteering helps you to give your mind some time to step away from the troubles of your studies. You will also feel good knowing you have helped mankind.
