the thing that I was afraid of when I decided to work for a company instead of continuing in the academic struggle was that I would not be doing things that have a purpose.
I don't think that exactly been the case yet, but I can start to feel it. I am still doing research, however, I feel a little more detached from the research. don't get me wrong, I am as busy as ever, doing a lot of work, but it is exactly that, work. There hasn't been a lot of positive reinforcement as of late, to let me know that I am doing the right thing. plus the canadian dollar is in the shit hole, that makes it even less fun.
this may be a long winter
