The Bug Geek

Insects. Doing Science. Other awesome, geeky stuff.

THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I QUIT MY JOB AND WENT BACK TO SCHOOL.

(Ok, maybe my love of science, research, and teaching also had something to do with it.)

But this stuff seriously pushed me waaaaaaay over the edge. Any one of those cubicles could have been mine. Heck, it was filmed in Ottawa – one of them probably WAS my cubicle! AAAK! I’m having flashbacks! *curls into a little ball in the corner*

    This comes pretty close to qualifying as child abuse….poor gal. ;)

    My 30+ years as a government employee tell me that I could receive an SSA and SPR plus a 6 month paid vacation in the form of an area wide staff restructuring if I could recruit that girl for my agency.

    It is good to see that bureaucrats are the same the world over. ;)

    I’d be tempted by another PhD, but couldn’t face the post-doc roundabout again.

    I think it’s the same story no matter where you go, Axon :)

    ANOTHER round? Yeesh, talk about glutton for punishment! I hope that this will be my one and only – I can’t afford to do a second “do-over”!
