gneiss; M.S. That’s good to, takes a LOT of work! I can relate to the student loan dilemma!!
Wow on the "go Pokes" . My grandmother was among the first women to graduate from OSU , before statehood in 1906. Dad holds a PhD in Mech. engineering from there and I got my B.S. there in '06.

Oh yea; I want to stay sober Because I want to live long enough to get my PhD.

Yes, RG = PG depending on the state. You are right not a lot of rocks in my field, mostly mud and water.

I never studied much paleo. The prof. at my OSU was a crusty SOB that hated teaching. His opening lecture was: “Your never going learn enough paleontolgy to be worth a sh!t. The best I can do is teach you to correctly collect samplesand prepare them for shipment so you don’t eff it up for a real paleotonogist.” He was right, once you can tell a mollusk from a bivalve you probably otta pat yourself on the back and get it to an expert – like you. I am sure you will out standing in your field someday. (I know, I have spent lots of time standing out in fields.)

Wow, he sounds friendly! In one semester you wouldn't learn enough paleo to do much, it's true, but that doesn't mean it's a waste of time. One of the funnest things we did in intro paleo was spend a week picking apart a "science" movie -- we chose Jurassic Park -- to see what they got right and wrong (I will never be content with Hollywood until dinosaurs are portrayed with feathers). We went through Origin of Species and pointed out where Darwin was wrong. Prof took a couple fossil sets and taught us about the critters in them, then we went on a field trip, collected and identified those fossils, and interpreted where/when they came from. And we sure had fun getting covered in mud on a nice spring day. In effect our professor had three goals: to help us understand what evolution is and isn't and how to use it in geology (a goal made all the more entertaining by the one Young Earth Creationist in the class), to understand the basic history of life on earth, and to have a little fun with paleontology. It really bothers me when scientists take the attitude that science (or their branch of it) is beyond the mental capabilities of most people (like your paleo prof seemed to think). It's a product of their own narcissism. All you need to be a scientist is curiosity about something. Look at Mythbusters; all they do is apply the process of science to urban legends (and then make things explode, of course).

I won't drink and drug today because it ruins my curiosity about the world around me.

I will not drink tonight because I'm way too busy packing for my move on Friday. I want to get everything non-essential in boxes tonight. Drunk packing = not a good idea!

I will not drink tonight because I don't drink PERIOD. I haven't had a drink in over 20 years. I will not take any opiates tonight because I am an addict, and if I do that, it will be a relapse, and I will throw away my sobriety of 5 good years clean and sober. I must stay clean to set a good example for myself and others. I can only lead by example.

Nice. It took me about an hour to get that link to load (ahh, university apartments, nothing but the highest quality Ethernet connection). I've had some jobs I'd like to quit in a similar manner.

LaFemme -- yes, we're moving on Friday. We're actually moving into the house we already own, though. We've owned our house on Long Island since June 30, but a lot of work has been being done on it so we've only been staying there on weekends. Now I'll be "by the sea" full time
