Thoughts all* PhD students have on Viva Day

In the morning:

“S%8t, is this actually happening?”

“I could be a Dr. today”

“I could also completely and utterly screw this up today”

“I should have read my thesis another 4 million times before today”

“Will coffee make me too shaky? Will no coffee mean I fall asleep?”


In the room just before the Viva begins:

“I don’t even know what my supervisor is saying right now, I cannot concentrate”

“I bet I forgot something really important”

“Don’t trip up when you’re walking into the room”

“Don’t forget to smile”

“You got this”


During the Viva


**Blank thoughts** **Have no memory**


After the Viva


“I did it!”
