The Ultimate Productivity Boost

Some times I believe I can fly

I checked off everything on the list last week. It wasn't even down to the line - at 1400h on Friday all that was left was one kickboxing class. I hung out, caught up on some reading, watched an episode of Scrubs and then went out for dinner. And I thought about how it was that ...

The Trade-off Between Useful and Interesting

Brown Betty Teapot

I don't think I'm cut out for graduate school. I say this as someone who just spent half an hour hiding in the bathroom in tears, so take what follows with a pinch of salt. I'm not giving up quite yet. Today, my supervisor told me my work made no contribution. I admit, that I haven't exactly ...
