Day 72 – Pirate ‪#‎hatONit‬ from Adam! Came with delicious Petsi Pie! More work. Good progress. Chemo tomorrow. (Well today at this point.) Advertisements

Day 71: Butterfly visor

Day 71 – Butterfly visor ‪#‎hatONit‬ from Courtney! I took a picture before it got dark because I get crazy eyes from my phone’s flash (see last couple days). For me, another day working on my dissertation. For the nation, another day of violence and mourning. The news is tragedy on repeat. My thoughts and…

Day 70: Dodgers hat

Day 70 – A crazy Dodgers ‪#‎hatONit‬ for a bit of hometown pride from Sharon! Kept my head warm in my freezing office today. And though currently out of touch with baseball, I enjoyed many Dodgers games back in the 90s with Annie. I am currently working on a chapter titled, “Pitfalls and biases in…

Day 69: Chainmail …Hat?

Day 69 – Chain mail ‪#‎hatONit‬ from Lisa L! I have enough hair to pouf out of it! Today I’ve met with both my advisors, gone to pilates, and worked on figures. So much tragedy has happened in the past day and weeks, and I feel more separate from it than usual, my mental space…

Day 68: Black Brimmed Hat

Day 68 – Beautiful black brimmed ‪#‎hatONit‬ on loan from EmilyKate! Today, gratitude for parts of the internet that have made my graduate studies easier: Google Scholar, Stack Overflow, everywhere Adobe Illustrator tips are posted, and, as of late, Undocumented Matlab. (Found some fun Matlab bugs recently…) Up to $16,181! Crossed $16k! 156 donations! https://www.crowdrise.com/hatonit

Day 67: New England Seaside Hat

Day 67- When you can’t go to the beach cause you’re working all day, how about a seaside ‪#‎hatONit‬? Made by Lisa!!! Back in the office today. I was glad to be using a larger monitor and to have Jake and Brian nearby to discuss analysis results with. Yes, my defense is less than two weeks…

Day 66: Blue Angels Hat

Day 66 – A blue angels ‪#‎hatONit‬ from my Lyft driver last week. He insisted I take this hat when he heard about my fundraiser. Just arrived home in Cambridge. Tired and glad to be back for the final dissertation push.

Day 65: Brain Hat

Day 65 – Brain ‪#‎hatONit‬ knit by Kirsten. Check out all the cortical folds! On a break from working, I caught up with my elusive Facebook husband, Mr. James Poole, who I haven’t seen in 7 years. He is a practitioner of the Emmett Technique, a holistic medicine therapy, and practiced some moves from the…

Day 64: Devo Hat

Day 64 – Devo ‪#‎hatONit‬ made by Joel (for an 80s party). The people of the Castro and the Mission LOVED it. I couldn’t walk a block without someone commenting on the hat. People in SF are so friendly and love a silly costume. Back in Boston/Cambridge, I get maybe one comment from a stranger on…

Day 63: Tin Foil Hat

Day 63 – A tin foil ‪#‎hatONit‬! (Well, aluminum.) Spent one of my thesis-ing breaks on it. My other two breaks were catching up with Elise over lunch and Daniel over dinner. Both are doing inspiring work to make the world a better place. SFers – Tomorrow (Sunday) I’m taking a longer thesis-ing break and would love…

Day 62: Wool German Hat

Day 62 – Wool German ‪#‎hatONit‬ on loan from Joel and Sarah. A lot of my workday was spent formatting my dissertation. This does not mean I’m anywhere near having complete text. Rather, that the formatting/typesetting instructions are a pain and the BU library likes to check early that you understand them. Later, Sarah and Alice and…
