Well, school has started again. As Year 2 of my Graduate career begins I have some hard decisions ahead to make ahead of me. By the end of this semester I’ll have to figure out what the subject of my Master’s Thesis will be, by the end of NEXT semester I’ll have to decide if I want to pursue my Ph.D. or not (and if I’m not going to teach, there’s little need for a Ph.D.) .
Then there’s all the assorted small (but no less important) decisions one has to make in the time in between. All this planning ahead, of course, conflicts with my goal of not thinking too far ahead and just taking it one day at a time. I never imagined I’d get this far - or do what I’m doing. At this rate I shall soon join the ranks of the rank and file overeducated degree-laden unemployed and unemployable intellectuals...and GOD knows, we have too many of them in this country already as it is.
But, hey, what can you do?
