23. Everyone Thinks You're Wasting Your Time
It's true. They judge you on the fact that you have one or two seminars a week and a few lectures; they forget the fact that you need to reading around three texts a week - set texts as well as other texts of the same author, time period and genre so that you can compare them. You feel suspicious when you do have some free time so you go out and enjoy yourself. Of course, outsiders accuse you of having too much free time and don't understand how you can afford to go to the movies when you claim to have so much work to do.
