There will be a longer post soon, but I had to have a chuckle when this popped up on my social media account.
Ten years is a long time, and a lot can happen in it!
I didn’t end up curing diseases, but I did get in to said degree. I had no intention of pursuing further study, but part way through my degree, I had some chance encounters and opportunities that changed my goals. They’re all outlined in my ‘How did I become #PhDLife?’ series of posts.
I had zero intention to do a Ph. D, but that’s the thing- plans change. Opportunities come and go.
But I’m still very glad to be where I am today. Even with all the tough times associated with all the achievements… because bloody hell it was hard.
But as much of a cliché as it is, the tough times do make the good times even better. I think it’s called ‘contrast’. 😂😅
