A reflection

I decided to wander over to my neglected blog today to see if it's still hanging around. Sure enough, there it was just as I left it. I know I've said this time and time again but I'm going to try to keep up on my blog. I've just got so many thoughts floating around in my head so why not share them with the masses.

As I was wandering around my blog I came to some realizations. For one, I think most people stumble on my blog looking for help with semicolon usage since my Ode to a semicolon post seems to attract the most attention. Whatever, I'll take it. This is followed by the How to write your thesis in a week post, which cracks me up for some reason. Perhaps because the conversation I had which led me to write that post still makes me laugh.

It does seem though that some other lost soles wander over here looking for advice on what to do after their PhD since the Alternative Careers in Science post and the A PhD outside academia post do seem to get a lot of views. I'm not sure if my advice is helpful or not but it is interesting to see that other people want more out of life than what the ivory tower offers.

Hopefully my future random ramblings have some use.
