Roundup 2009 - mair — LiveJournal
Oh good, you've reminded me that I've got a huge pile of thesis-faff to get back to in a few days. Grr.
I countered "what will you do when you've finished your PhD?" with "well, what's the standard academic progression from there?". Sitting around in a lab, trying to get attached to projects, and waiting for a lectureship opening that won't happen during a time of budget panic? Yeah, I'll pass. I may soon run out of ways to avoid the Real World.
