I have also come to the realisation that at the moment the PhD doesn't make me want to claw my own eyes out. I think this is largely due to the fact I am finally doing stuff that I enjoy, am good at, and am trained in, and thus (lo and behold) I am actually getting some decent results. Honestly, I'm just a microbiologist. Anything else proves difficult and frustrating to me.
ALso, today is the day when Jye and I have been officially together for three whole years. So stick that in your collective pipe and smoke it, all you folks who said we wouldn't last.
