Decided to say fuck it and thank Gene Roddenberry in my acknowledgements. This is the most adult thing I have ever done.
DONE! Time to decide if I want to add a joke in the acknowledgements or not. I know for a fact that one of my supervisors is planning on having it printed and hard-bound (more like I’m getting it printed for him, but w/e) so it’s going to be in his office for all of eternity. I’m so tempted.
to clarify further, I literally said some of the bunches of clay particles looked like badminton birdies and this apparently qualifies as generally excellent descriptive petrography
how am I even doing grad school next year
"Generally excellent descriptive petrography of difficult-to-describe features."
I’M SCREAMING I LOVE THIS PROF HE’S SO NICE
