    Do I Let Go?

    I started my PhD in the beginning of 2006. I literally planted myself in the lab for 3 years and in those years I had achieved my goal: to finish all needed experiments and use the final (4th) year for writing the stuff up. During those years life issues happened to me as well...

    I'm Just Sick Of It

    I'm in the fourth year of a PhD and I am just totally sick of it. Not in itself, I'm just so ready to move on now, and find out what will come next in my life.

    I Had So Much Problems and Lost So Much Time!

    I have just started my third year of my PhD research. I had so many difficulties during the first two years. I started my PhD working on a topic that I didn't choose, I wasn't good in it, it was not interesting, and the worst of this was the director, he was unable to understand...
