I just need to ramble. Finality is settling and it is a weird looking beast.
So... After 5 year my boss has decided that I have pretty much met the requirements for my PhD. He informed me that he wants me to defend by no later than May.
Which begs the question "What next?"
My answer: I have no clue.
I honestly have no idea what I want to do or where I want to go. Quite the cunundrum. What exactly does one do with a PhD in bacterial genetics? I have to say, the picture of a fire tower in Idaho has appeal... For no reason other than I have not the slightest idea what else to do with my life.
