    She thinks I'd make a better politician instead. I explained to her that I have no interest in politics and that my future is in academia.

    well i mean getting a Ph.d in English only really gives you one field to really go into. I can understand why so you won't be pigeon held into whatever schools are in that area.

    Yes, you'll be especially motivated to buss tables when you have to pay interest on all of those student loans

    I can't see you getting a PHD in anything but butt-chugging.

    If you wanna be a professor, go the long haul and aim for an expertise in English. If you've already got your Masters, then you've got a good feel for academic writing with a little teaching on the side. If articles and wrangling college students sounds like the perfect work environment, then that's what you should try to seek

    Muscle, muscle! Hustle, hustle!

    I predict you will get your PhD by age 57
