One thing you can be Sure of

Just got back from one of those CMB seminars. Fini's supe gave a presentation on his work and his *ahem* wedding. :) I really like seeing the way he presents. Not at all dull. Everything he said sounded so appealing. The research group he was with, the promising projects they were working on, the simple experiments he conducted and all that traveling and fresh new atmosphere. Not to mention that I find the science interesting. Yes, I'm still a science geek after all.

That's just it. It always sounds so appealing on paper, in pictures, through spoken words. In truth, when you get down to the nitty gritty of things, when you're in between everything, the glimmer fades.

I've always been amused with a researcher's life. Spotting my supe's sports car and counting the amount of countries they've visited (whether for work or play) made me hold on to the notion of better things to come. But of course, I managed to be disillusioned by all the fabulous things and miss all the hard work and all that brain picking. It's much like wanting to be a pop star and having their wealth without actually having much talent or willingness to put up with training. And seriously, just because you take voice lessons doesn't make you Whitney Houston.

What's the conclusion here. I don't know. Make it up yourself. It's either:
A) you need hard work to get what you want in life.
B) don't be conned by the highs of a certain career if you're not willing to put up with the lows.
C) find and choose something you'd WANT to put up with, highs AND lows.
D) you will never be Whitney Houston. EVER.



Ahaaa! another flashback! Please don't follow the advice of Ms Houston. If you understand the lyrics that is. If you're just taking the words from the chorus then fine. Go ahead. Your partner would cair most definitely.

Therapeutic Ramblings
A dash of Disney, a sprinkle of pop punk, lashings of sweet treats, a pinch of superheroes, bundles of laughter and a tinge of crankyness.
All wrapped up in a pretty package that resembles the Cookie Monster.
