There is very much real value in me covering events cool.gif

 

Here is a comprehensive look at my writing portfolio:

While you'll probably never work on a project that carries with it the intensity or the singular ownership as your thesis, I think you'll find that any job worth having will require the constant management of deadlines and pressure. I work in a non-revenue generating area of a company that is constantly in "cost-cutting" mode. So while I may not be filling out grant applications and writing research papers I have to constantly demonstrate that the group I work in does things like "create value" and "enhances shareholder value". It's not my favorite aspect of my job, but it's certainly not the worst. Keeping it challenging is what it makes it so worthwhile.

i just want a completely average 9-5 job so that I can live my life outside of work. work to live not live to work concept.

Mikey, if you are figuring this out now, you are very lucky. Better to discover this now, rather than halfway through your second year in a PhD program. If you're genuinely serious about that last sentence you wrote, I would advise you to choose your electives with purpose. I'm not saying you need to drop everything and become a finance major, but take an intro course into computer science (if you don't already have a background in it) and accounting (same). With a decent GPA from Hopkins, a strong science background, and just a little bit of rounding out your skills, you can easily get a very good job with decent hours and pay (especially if you're not picky about where you want to live, like say Cleveland).

rom someone who got a PhD and did a postdoc at some world class universities and has a faculty position at a state school (so, I've seen a lot of people in academia face the same thing.)

crossing my fingers on a nice 9-5 research job

Most of them are in the middle of nowhere, and you'll be bored to tears. And because the turnover rate, your coworkers are likely to be all fifty years old. Also, if you really dislike the work, 9-5 will seem like forever. Find something that really holds your attention, even through all the bullshit that *every* job carries with it.

You're all killing my hope it will continue like this.

Nah. Some people will continue to love it, some less. The secret in discipline. Like I just said, if you like it enough to deal with the bullshit, you'll know it's the career for you.

When I go back to school I'll be in my junior year, and I've decided to change my Major from Physics/Math with a Philosophy Minor to Computer Science(/Philosophy) with a Physics minor. I like software development more than any research I've research, and its much more practical.

My 9-5 job is slowly killing me.

How do I gain a vast knowledge about fashion history?

On this theme, what do you say we start a SW&D Douglas Hofstadter / Godel, Escher, Bach thread?  Maybe we can finally figure out the secrets behind the user styleforumrobot

The answer is both easy and impossibly hard: you must look sipang in the eyes for 12 seconds.

only impossibly hard due to my vacant eye sockets

I've been thinking about this for a while too. Same designers and all.

 

This look is pretty good, although you don't see much:
