Second Year Burn Out?

There is a growing consensus among my PhD friends…we’re all burning out. We’re sick of having our lives run by homework. We want to do things that everyone else does with their evenings…read for fun, do laundry, go to sporting events, slip into bed a few hours earlier than normal.
Most of us are in at least halfway–far too much to consider dropping out. Not that we would. But finding out you’re not the only one sick of living this kind of life brings some type of comfort. I guess we’re all locked in the PhD biosphere, but finding out there are other people who want out makes me feel less guilty for the thoughts.
