Grad school = bad life choices!

UGH – I am so bitter right now (last 6 months of my PhD) I can’t give anyone non-biased advice LOL!

@love108:  Biological chemistry and molecular pharmacology. I’m leaving and becoming a high school teacher because I hate it so much! Well I love science… but a career in academia is so NOT for me.

@FMM:  Oh yes, I’m quite bitter too. I’m not really allowed to talk to any new people who come into our lab thinking about joining because I scare them off hahaha

@missfrillycoat:  Bad life choice #2 (#1 was my masters!)

Honestly, I did a PhD for ALL the WRONG reasons. Really I did it because it was the path of least resistance…. not a good a reason to do a phd!

@missfrillycoat:  Haha I’m going crazy right now, but I’m glad someone thinks I’m a bad ass, so thank you 🙂 

And did grad school actually make you grey?! Because I have far too many on my 26 year old head and am hoping the rest hold out til after the wedding :/

@missfrillycoat:  They didn’t hood you for your bachelor’s or master’s???

I have been hooded twice already but we did it 3 people on stage at the time, PhD you get the stage all to yourself!!!!! Not gonna lie that will be an awesome WELL DESERVED moment!!!!

@FMM:  In the US you only get hooded for a PhD at most places. My cousin got a hood for her Masters and I was kind of mad, haha. Why didn’t I get a hood for my MIT masters????? You should get like a 30 year supply of Xanax AND a freaking hood for graduating from MIT.
