Do you ever feel like, too qualified and too female? Because I get that feeling a lot. Not to complain, I have a perfectly comfortable existence. But I’m definitely not living up to my potential. I can’t remember the last time anybody even asked me about my potential – this coming from someone who wanted to be a chef and cook food for people but was scathingly discouraged because I wouldn’t be living up to my potential. Who’s laughing now? No one. Okay, maybe I just laughed a little.
So I’m basically freelancing in NYC, which is interesting. And totally analogous to funding and executing a science research pipeline, without the science. It’s slow-going because there’s a lot of setup involved, including getting an ergonomic keyboard. I’m going to be splitting my time between that and the usual graduate school wrap-up activities.
There’s not very much else going on. I need to go book-diving at Strand, which I’m looking forward to.
