Dissertation duo

My friend Amanda and I have a pact to get our dissertations written this summer. Yesterday we had a long lunch catching up on the news of my trip to Iceland and her family's visit to Berkeley, and at the end of lunch we agreed no more long lunches if we are in writing mode.

Last semester she was in a dissertation group with two others, but I think she found it really did not help her much. Because it became about competition, about who got what done, etc.. And that was no good for her self-esteem, or her productivity.

I am not the competitive type, so I think I can be a good dissertation partner for her.
