My advisor wants me to graduate next spring. My boss at work wants me to graduate next spring. I want me to graduate next spring. So if I have enough energy to get the work done, we’re all in agreement.
The caveat is that I’m not going to have time to TA while all this is going on. We’re working on ways to compensate for that.
I had sort of resigned myself to a career that was less than what I’d hoped for, because of my energy limitations these days. But I finally got the courage to tell my boss at work what my dream job has always been, and he thinks I am qualified for it and can handle it. Not to mention that he’s friends with the dean at one of the institutions I’ve had my eye on.
I will keep you all posted.
