Weekly Thoughts – Feeling End of Semester Pressure

Wow, time flies so fast, it must be riding in a supersonic jet.  It’s amazing how quickly the time seems to go by.  Just four weeks from now, I will be taking my last final of the semester, and thus be officially one year away from graduating from graduate school and having my Master’s degree.  Then I shall be a master (of biochemistry, I suppose; hey, you can’t become the master of the universe overnight).

I will be doing my best to keep my blog fully updated and keep participating in all my social groups, in real life and online.  The Yakezie, for example are running their writing contest soon, and I’ve already pledged to donate.

But as you might guess, it does tend to mean that I don’t get to spend as much time reading and commenting on other great blogs as I would like (although, with how many great blogs there are out there, I would need several copies of myself to keep up, it seems).  Still, I do get around to reading some blogs, which brings us to a few of the best posts of the past week:

  1. @Ravi: Congratulations are in order for you, too, it seems. Here’s hoping we both have a relatively easy time of finding a job when we have our new degrees.

    @Sam: You’re welcome; I’m always glad to help out my fellow Yakezie. I’m scheduled to graduate in the spring of 2012 (assuming I can write and defend my thesis sufficiently well to earn passing marks. As for my ideal job, I’d like to work in the pharmaceutical industry again. There was something very satisfying about knowing that your work was a part, however small, in the process of helping people to live healthier. At some point in the future, I might also like to get my PhD and start teaching; I do enjoy working with my students, and wouldn’t mind opting for that route as a sort of second act career.
