Did you ever have one of those weeks? You know, you're near the end of your degree program, you've got about six months of funding left, and you feel pretty good about how things are going. Then, you realize that you've got 170 samples to analyze, and your intern two years ago took ten weeks to analyze 26 samples, and 170 divided by 26 means you'll be out of money, dropped out, and living in a refrigerator box about nine months before you get done analyzing samples, let alone write up and defend. And the panic overwhelms you to the point that you waste an entire precious day looking for work in the food service or retail sectors, and you notice an opening at Voodoo Donuts in Portland, and you remember that Wednesday donuts is tomorrow...
And you know everything will be OK.
PS->Donuts this week by Tomas Follett. Thanks, Tomas!
