Great Post

Wow. I totally feel this post. I think this is what I've been going through for the past year or so, especially the last sentence or two. (And no, not the part about being married with a kid, and having a boyfriend.)

I've always felt the need for alot of space, and I totally agree with her in that I often think back fondly to my 3rd year in grad school. As weird of a year as that was, I really miss it, and I miss the freedom that I felt then.

Wow, I am with you on this one hoagieboy. As you know, I just experienced some angst with my Mom visiting. A big part of that is I need space, while my Mom hates space.

Sometimes what I missed most is when I worked an hourly wage job (kitchen staff). When your hours were up, your hours were up and you never felt you should go back and do some extra work or "try to get ahead." In this research world, you are never done, and you are always feeling like you "should" be doing something else.

But I love science, and I'm so lucky to be doing it. It would be horrible to waste my time doing something else, like talking to friends, reading the internet, or relaxing.

You know, everytime we discover something new, an angel get it's wings. Thus, I better get back to work.
