PseudoRandom is loving her PhD*

Listening to: Radio 1

I am an engineer. Give me a complex problem to solve and I'm like a kid in a candy store. This afternoon, I was looking over the results I've obtained over the past few months with the intention of making sense of it all. I didn't manage to solve all my problems, but I did use up most of my whiteboard (or at least the bit I can reach without getting up on the desk) to jot down everything I knew and didn't know about what was happening in my experiment...and it helped clear a few things up. I'm quite excited now. I want to meddle, to test my hypotheses, to be able to go up to my supervisor and show him that I do know what's going on (contrary to his belief). The motivation is back. I can't wait to get back into the lab and do my next 21-hour experiment. Bring it on, baby. Woohoo!

I love doing what I do.

*Subject to change with no notice whatsoever, so enjoy it while it lasts.


  1. Imprsssed! if you ask me.... i think its quite hot to even think of a 25 year old chemical engineer doing her Phd.... unless she's out to get you and cooking dinner for you!! :)

    But good luck with the Phd!

  2. sounds awesome! all the best with your work!!:)

  3. LOL at myprerogative.... :D i think the "bring it on, baby" really worked on him ;)

    sorry i couldnt resist :D

    yes i love that rush too when i finally actually KNOW something... but it usually doesnt last long with me... lol... ;)
