description: a full 4 or 5 years of higher education mostly combined with a dissertation that leads you a doctor degree.
reality: a full 4 or 5 years of education during which you sacrifice much of the things in general: including your family, friends, lovers/kids if you have, what and whoever takes your time related to phd stuff, your life basically. if it’s done abroad it takes to consider living all apart from your beloved ones not to mention living without seeing how their lifes change without your presence.
suitable for those who are full of ambitions and ideas or those who are yet keeping them.
such a long time needs your full attention and not allowing outlier events in your life. it’s worth if you only want it deeply, you can’t think it as let me try. can be bearable if you start it with someone you support each other otherwise such adventures * can be disastrous.
looking forward how an edit to this entry will come from the future, around 2 years later.
something can make you feel regretful if you do not dare to do at some point in your life, when after years all the inferior-like people around you will have done it in the future. also, one type of a self-torture if you are not in love with your field.
