Everyone needs hobbies, and it’s especially important to maintain them throughout your Ph. D. Last thing you want is for your entire world to just be research. I don’t know about you, but that would make me go insane.
One of my hobbies is gardening, and as I slowly transition toward the writing and finishing up phase of my Ph. D, I’ve decided that these guys can keep me company at my desk. Good mental health is really important at any phase in life, and these lil hedges will keep me happy.
