"Look, it's hard enough without you also beating yourself up. ".

From Ms PhD's blog. So true. So true.

The one outstanding quality my PhD Advisor had was an unbeatable optimism. I am far from there- I am, in fact, very cynical and constantly being hard on myself. I'm going to try every day to be a little less negative and a little more positive about myself, my abilities and my career goals.

I am quiet but regular reader of your blog...a few days back I came across a fellowship opportunity that, from what I have read here in more recent posts might be of interest to you.

I think the deadline for the current cycle has passed but apparently a new cycle will come up before the end of the year.

Good Luck!

If only everybody realised it, there would be far fewer teary eyed ppl in my class!
