Dr. Mom, My Adventures as a Mommy-Scientist

Discussion of my journey from grad school to postdoc to tenure with two kids, a husband, (and a bit of breast cancer) in tow.

Are sure its not Monday?

Well, things lately have been fairly repetitive and kind of boring/depressing. All my grants from summer and fall were rejected. I need to write more, but I am hard pressed for time because I am teaching and also have a ton of things leftover from last qtr that didn't get done because I was teaching Class That Sucks The Life Out of Me. I've finally destressed, gotten most of those things done and am starting to think about grants. I am a little depressed. Am I going to work so hard to get this idea out only to have it trashed again, but I also know the best way to deal with stuff is to get back on the horse. So I guess I am off to write some grants (after I have office hours, meet with the seminar speaker, and teach my class)

It's amazing how having Class that Sucks the Life Out of You can reduce productivity in other areas. Good luck with your next grant cycle.
