Well, there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel (hence the picture. And the title): After a good meeting last Thursday, it seems we have a clearer view as to how much further we need to go before we pull the plug and call it a PhD. Which is good news for me, as the uncertainty was driving me mad: No end in sight, no budget planning (I’m not getting paid anymore), no organisation of job applications, no plans for Life After The Lab. At least now I know pretty much what my to-do list contains.
I was also going to close with a paragraph here about my experiences with Christmas shopping this year, but instead I’ll close with something a lot more meaningful. JUST STOP THE MAYHEM, PEOPLE! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? STOP THE SHOPPING!
For unto us a Child is born,
us a Son is given;
the government will be upon His shoulder.
His name will be called
Counselor, Mighty God,
Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6
