Tranglos and Armando - I'm glad you two were able (strong enough) to walk away. My forehead is bruised and I am tired from the exertion of beating my head against any available hard surface (wall, desktop, etc.). For now, I must keep trying (er, perhaps that should be start trying! Like tranglos I've yet to write anything "concrete" just lots, and lots, and lots of ideas and notes...).
Thanks for sharing guys (and wish me luck?)
Darwin! I know how you feel, and I sincerely hope that -- at least -- you enjoy parts
of your research. If you're like most perfectionists, you probably tend to indefinitely postpone the moment of redaction. So... you should "just" start your first draft ASAP. When do you think you'll start giving a shape to all that material you've been collecting? (of course... who am I to tell/ask you that...
Armando, sorry to hear that. it sounds not so good but i wish best of luck with your future endeavour.. on the other hand, it's nice & enlightening to hear discussions about your respective dissertations.
Darwin, the same to you too..
Thanks Lanux. Fortunately, it's not toooooo bad. A bit of an identity crisis I guess, but that's the story of my life (communication, music, literature, theater, psychology, teaching, computers...). I'm not worried about my future though -- luckily, I usually succeed at what I do!
Most importantly, I want to enjoy my future projects. The last 3 years have been painful, so... Time for some nice change!
btw, it's my 2222th post (inspiration from Curt)..

That's a lot of posts... But you'll have to run faster to catch Darwin.
