Abstract Agony

In the four years since I started my PhD program, I have written 2-4 conference abstracts a year.  In the beginning, I thought it would get easier and less painful with time.  Hah! Now, I'm faced with trying to fit parts of my dissertation into an abstract, which kind of feels like trying to stuff an octopus into a teacup.  It doesn't help that the abstract I'm currently submitting is for a conference that is generally opposed to octopuses, but sometimes accepts them dressed as seahorses.  Ikhssssssssss!

  1. Suddenly I have a craving for grilled octopus. Possibly with tea on the side.
