So, I have finished my "what I want series". I posted "Full Circle" and "Back to Motivation" this morning--enjoy or neglect to read them...whatever motivates you. Yes, you can breathe a sigh of relief and we can go back to our normal blogger lives. I moved it over to the sidebar for your reading pleasure;)

You may wonder, "so what happens next?"

I don't know.

I'm going to finish my PhD in a few months and figure out what that next step will be. You'll find out when I do.

Thanks for being patient.

Have I told you lately that I love you?

Damn you woman for putting that song in my head. Awww shucks, I forgive you--you are the bestest!

I am singing it, too. Backfired.

And, noooo, *you* are the bestest!

Let's be phone friends.

This series was wonderfully written, mostly because it struck such a chord with me.

I didn't have an undergrad experience to 'warn' me, so I'm getting all my uneasy feelings about research now, midway through my PhD. I may wind up switching careers completely when this is over, but I want the degree so that at some point I can use it if I want, even if it isn't immediate.

Thank you so much for writing this series. I find it extremely comforting to know that there are others going through similar doubts, etc. about graduate school, life and all. I'm trying to work out what I want with the rest of my life, and why. And I'm having these issues while getting my master's degree! I haven't even approached a PhD yet. I'm trying to figure out if I should.

Again, thank you so much.

Patient is my middle name...oh, no...actually it's not...nevermind.

Thanks for being so willing to share it with us, allowed me the chance to learn more about you and also prompted me to consider a lot of similar questions in my life...will post about that later.

My friend sent me a link to your blog. She thought we might have something in common, and she's right. I'm also foundering in the no-man's land of "oh wait I accomplished all of my academic goals according to plan and now I don't know what to do." It's very exciting, really, and quite terrifying. It's reassuring to know, though, that I am not the only wanna-be-psychologist whose hobbies including producing dopamine and shopping for capes :)
