That doesn't look like crud to me. For me, in the immediate post-dissertation binding hours, there was very little coming from my mind except "I'm free. I'm free. I'm FREEEEEE!" Certainly nothing I could put down on paper. I look back on it with a lot more affection now but it was a long while before I could go anywhere near any of the texts I used. And that was annoying, as one of them is one of my favourites books.
