Last week was a crazy week for me. Everything that can go wrong, did. I was not just physically tired last week but I was mentally drained. I was not exactly that busy last week, I did not even run any experiments. I was supposed to just write my report, it should be an easy week for me. But unseen and uncontrollable problems at work caused a havoc in my group. Everyone was emotionally hurt, upset, angry and disappointed. For the first time, I actually felt that I was engulfed in anger and rage.

But that was all over! YAY! And now that I have finished my report, I felt more relieved.

So one of the small milestone of my PhD has reached. Well, not exactly, since I have not given my talk on my 6 months report yet. That will be next week. Wish me luck. I couldn’t and daren’t imagine how hard one year review will be since I am already having such a hard time now. Pray that God will give me strength, perseverance and patience.

What happened to our group last week made me wonder, does someone has to be ruthless and heartless to be able to hold a high position job?

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
