Trying on my rose colored glasses

It has been brought to my attention that my last blog may have been a tad melodramatic. (What... me!) Just to clarify, my world is not coming to an end, and my thoughts of dropping out of grad school were mostly (I'd say 92.3%) in jest. I will chalk it up to my first real ride on the emotional roller coaster (please forgive the cliche, it really is a good image) that is, by all accounts, graduate school. I suppose I could institute a 24 hour waiting period before posting any emotionally charged blog post. But then, where is the fun in that?

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I would like to end this brief post by stating how lucky I consider myself (for many reasons, but here referring to my student-ness). In a time when many are without jobs, or worried about security, my research has been deemed worthy of 6 years of support, and my responsibility is to learn as much as I can, and try to discover exciting new things. It really doesn't get much cooler than that!
