Used to describe two alternating states common to students and professionals in technical fields: the state of "grinding" for a work/school deadline and the state of "grinding" on the dance floor following completion of said academic/professional responsibilities. This connotation is most often applied to graduate students in doctoral programs, particularly in fields that involve intense computer programming and/or rigorous technical calculations, in which case it is referred to as "the research grind".
It was apparent to his colleagues that Philip was grinding on a paper deadline, as he was unkempt and his attire consisted of a Stanford hoodie covered in pizza stains. Nevertheless, Philip and his friends looked forward to the MTV style grind to follow said deadline.
