Stuck in the lab

15:19:00 Karen Li 1 Comments

Before I started my PhD I often heard of stories about how hard PhD students have to work. And for the last two years, it's been pretty cruisy. I had been waiting for approvals, waiting for software, programming. I had been doing literature reviews. But now it's game on.

I feel like I real scientist. I spend hours in my "lab" and put things in and wait for an output. Experiment fails and I have to do it again. Make a little mistake and I have to run the whole thing again. One set of analyses takes several hours- even on my speedy ramped up desktop. But so many so many failed attempts. Hours and hours on end refining lines of syntax. Looking for missed commas and fullstops, misspelt words and trying different types of analyses.

It's a very slow and arduous process. I wanted to give up. Imagine spending 15 hours straight on a set of analyses, then it goes wrong. You think you fix it then spend hours again.... and it still doesn't work. You try again and again. Nothing seems to work.

In these troubled times, I spend time with the Lord. While I wait, I meditate on his many blessings and listen to songs of praise. And He reminds me- NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.


Please support my efforts in the Gold Coast Marathon 10km run. This year I will be running for Compassion.
