New Year

Current Plans

As I’ve told a number of people in person, but failed to publish online, I haven’t completely severed my ties with graduate school. In December I became aware of a potential “plan B” for being a student, which I am now pursuing. I’ll continue taking classes this semester (in fact I’ll take a rather large load of classwork) and being a graduate student instructor, but I won’t be working in a research lab. If I successfully complete my classes, then I’ll be able to leave at the end of the spring with a coursework-based Masters degreee in Chemistry.

Honestly, I am still unsure of whether this is the best move for me right now. The degree itself won’t be worth that much more than a bachelors, but it provides me with an income and something to occupy my time for the next few months. Following that, who knows!

Here’s a short list of “also-ran” ideas for what to do next:

-Mountain-man / hermit

-Baker

-Glassblower

-Think-tank-er

-Revolving door repairman

-Stand-up Philosopher

-Subway operator

Which do you think I should try next?

  1. Why not combine a few? A Glass-blowing hermit who jots down Philosophical musings and stores them in the Jars he creates! A One man, modern take on the Essenes at Qumran!
