Abstract: 

This arts-based autoethnography explores the experience of a graduate student of mathematics at a mid-sized research university through a collection of collage, songwriting, and personal essays. This research identifies issues in the mathematics academic pipeline associated with gender, burnout culture, perfectionism, mental health, qualifying exams, and isolation. The present research is synthesized with existing research on doctoral attrition. Possible positivefutures of graduate education in mathematics are discussed.
