Been a long time

Sorry I haven't posted in a long time.  I have been pretty busy in the Anatomy program.  I am not sure how often I will have time to think about what to post and to post it.

I have something to think about and even though I don't have too many people reading this, I was hoping for opinions anyway.

I have an opportunity that might be very helpful to me.  It is somewhat research-related and will fill a good chunk of my research time requirements, it will waive/fill some of my teaching assistant requirements and it will even give me a little bit of money.  If things go well, it may even end up helping some people.  The downside is that most of the research time isn't directly reated to what I am studying, and I'll end up unavoidably being exposed to things I'm allergic to a good chunk of the time.

I am weighing the pros and cons, so I'd like any opinions people might have.  Sorry I am being so vague about what it is but I'm not allowed to give out specifics.

Thanks :)


  1. It sounds like a good idea if it will fulfill research requirements (not to mention the possibility of money!) but I think you should investigate more to figure out how well it will relate to what you're studying. No point in going through with it if it won't teach you anything important, right? But it might be worth it.

  2. I think, if it fulfills some of your requirements, and it might well end up helping people, it certainly sounds like a good idea. But, as the last poster said, it might depend on the amount of time you'd need to devote to it and how that balances with in what way it is related to your research, even tangentially.
