All I want to do is start working on my dissertation.

I don’t want to grade papers.
I don’t want to prepare this lecture.
I don’t want to read for the Horrible Tutorial.
I don’t want to do this god-awful lackey flunky indentured servant research assistant “work”.

I want to track down informants.
I want to go do all my scary fieldwork.
I want to transcribe interviews (insane, right?).
I want to write the goddamn dissertation. I want to start writing *now*.
I want to graduate.

Clearly: I need more free money.
