Has it been that long?

Can't believe I haven't posted in two months. Well, things have changed somewhat, my poor 1997 car went the way of the dodo when i got into a very minor wreck. Was a great chance for an upgrade and I got a new Honda Civic. I love that car, its sporty, great mileage, fun to drive.

Career wise, things are changing. I"m pretty sure I don't want to be where I'm at right now. The market is simply horrible and overcrowded. Not only do we have to compete with all American PhDs but also foreigners. I've read alot of stats, i'll just paraphrase, but it's something insanely like 1/3 of all PhDs are biology, but only 2% of faculty are biologists. It's a very very competitive market, and it's just going to get worse, bail out or no.

So...i'm pursuing options. One is to teach somewhere. ANother is vet school. Another is IT.

"Life is like a box of chocolates..." This will be an intersting transition for you. Any of those options sound good to me! Glad your're posting again.
