Post-Write Up Depression.

Whilst the PhD writing-up period is rightly described as a period of immense stress, I hate to say that I have found what comes after it to be worse. Part of this has to do with unfortunate visa clusterfuck I’ve been dealing with while waiting to take my exam, but I imagine the rest of it is quite common. In many ways all this shit encourages a bout of regression, which has led me to some regrettable behavior — which may cost me dear — but also back to the point where I find myself tonight: identifying with Buzzcocks singles in the same way I did as a teenager. Although the hooks are timeless, I wish the lyrics to songs like ‘Autonomy’ and ‘Nostalgia’ had long since been realised.
