On another note, my dog died. I have a QA up at OHSU and a class and then I will bury him. EFO is coming home for the burial.
I was just thinking to myself "I'm so tired". At 9:30 on a Wednesday morning after a full night of sleep. Then I realized that I'm not tired, I'm just mentally fatigued. I'm fatigued by always juggling a dozen deadlines, always having past-due bills, always having a full list of things that need to be taken care of when I have the time and money, and fatigued by having to look at and think about other students who can't seem to get it together enough to just read the fucking directions.
I'm fatigued by having a treadmilling to-do list; tick one thing off the top, add another to the bottom. Write this, read that, enter these grades, make a Powerpoint, do the dishes.
I'm not sure if this is transient stress from a shitty term or whether I'm just burnt out on being a student. I browed the want ads for molecular biologists today, and am appalled at how many biotech companies are hiring molecular biologists... in sales.
That's how I felt and it was the worst in my last quarter.
