Even times of success in academia can be full of so things that are like

"Congrats, but it's not quite official yet, so"

And this can happen sometimes for the same thing over and over again

🍍 You submitted your thesis congrats but it's not officially done yet so
🍍 You defended your thesis congrats but it's not official until you make these revisions and make final submission so
🍍 You made final submission but it has to be processed by admin so

And by the time you're done done

You don't care

“Congrats on getting your proposal submitted!”

Please don’t congratulate me, I won’t know if it was worth all the effort for another 5 months

@InvaderXan "Congrats on getting your paper past peer review"

Thanks, but I've had papers rejected for editorial reasons after peer review


“Congrats on getting accepted onto a postdoc!”

*8 months later*

“Hey, weren’t you supposed to have a job by now?”
