    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...

    I'm Just Sick Of It

    The World Just Got Much Bigger

    Okay, maybe I'm jumping the gun a little by saying "I need to finish my PhD."  The truth is I'm finishing my Masters right now.  Five more chapters and I'll be done with the program.  Something strange happened to me over the course of about 200 books...

    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...
