5 stages of reading reviewer comments

The PhD process is so much fun!
  1. Resentment
    Fuck that guy he doesn't know what's novel
  2. Regret
    Why did I go into academia? 4 years in, I can still quit and start a microbrewery.
  3. Rationalization
    Peer review is a useless exercise that perpetuates the need for validation and encourages narcissism, hierarchy and insecurity.
  4. Resignation
    I guess it can go to a different journal, but it will probably get rejected there too.
  5. Resume Delusion
    I'm gonna be famous! (When my adviser tells me how easy these comments are and we'll just revise and resubmit no biggie.)
