Research is the best thing to do but sometimes I get mad because they pay so less and I feel its not worth all the hard work

I noticed yesterday that posts were missing.

I had added it to BD's list of offences. I will now retract.

tbh, I struggle to believe that biscuit is as old as 18. My guess would be 14.

I don't want to apply for faculty because my energy and ambition have totally been drained during my PhD. So I guess I will settle for a post doc and crappy salary. But even uni's are not hiring because of this economy
Ith dthat how you spread good vibes and support to those going through this painful PhD thing?


But on a serious note, i kinda of get what you mean. I went through similar mental, financial,potential drainage going through the masters and work and i guess the PhD won't be different. But on a personal level Hema, i love teaching and though it can drive me crazy sometimes but it's a lively job.

I know it must be hard getting a job with this economy craziness going all around.How about taking some time to think it over? All the best with ur decision anyway Hema.

Right after he wins a title. I don't get it. If it's a choice between the two, then put all the effort into the major.

i did a paper on gene doping and WADA last year and i think they'd be better off focusing their energies on ways to figure out how to combat that, if they decide at all that it must be combated

He made a mean crack about her being a simpleton, and I've got definitive proof to the contrary.

The doping, the stupid threads by ruanz etc... I think a lot of that stuff has been deleted already.

that's very cool same field as metis, yeah?

thanks i'm drowning in ginger tea it's very soothing. but not oranges, citrus fruits make my cold worse though i love them.
Yes it is cool but it usually also depends on the point of study one's intending to go through. Wish me Luck ladies, i'm gonna need it all.

Yes. Ginger is awesome for cold. Mmmm, try kiwi wildie, they're not as sour as oranges, Don't you like them?

Sorry, Noura Actually, its not only that. In the US, getting a faculty position and keeping it is not at all easy. The ratio of PhD's to faculty positions is very high. Plus the faculty have to struggle so much for funding that only the most driven survive. Added to that, I have location constraints. And I want to have kids soon and it conflicts with that as well

That was so cryptic, Kelli. Have you decided on that tone as well
