Going home tomorrow for a week. Get to visit my twin brother in Uni, get to see a new baby (cousin and his wife's), get to eat some Nigerian food, just get to relax in my home with my family where this 'shutting people out because I'm miserable' thing does not fly. I need it. I will have to carry on doing work while I'm there, but I CANNOT wait!
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Love: QB - all of it, Bobeam - shampoo bars, Darcy's Botanicals - Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, Coconut Cupuacu Pomade, KBN - Shealoe Leave-in, Oyin - Juices & Berries, Kinky Curly - Knot Today, Ayurvedic treatments, my Denman and the cloud of kinky goodness on my head that I get to play with!

I'm really torn about what I should be doing....right now I'm on a track to get both degrees (undergraduate) but at some point I'm going to have to make a decision. If you don't have a graduate degree in science fields you are basically considered a second-class citizen in the scientific world but getting a PhD is going to take so much work, stress and time. However, I really do love the field and I feel intellectually stimulated 80% of the time (I'll admit sometime class is just boring no matter what!)

On the other hand I really love teaching. Everyone says it is my calling in life (teachers that I've had, people that I've tutored, etc). I enjoy children and I really want to make a difference. However, these education classes are not stimulating at all. I always feel like I'm about to fall asleep. (Maybe it's because I'm taking elementary math (long division, addition, etc) and differential equations (engineering, basically Calculus 4) in the same day?) I have to wonder if I would get bored of teaching 4+5=9 year after year. I suppose the excitement and variation comes with each new class and everyone's personalities.

Plus there is the money issue to consider...I know you should do what you love but I really believe that I would love both. I also found out that at first a PhD in bioengeering will mostly likely pay around 30K-40K per year....That's less than a lot of teachers make and I just can't imagine doing all the work of a PhD student and then get minimal return as far as compensation is concerned. I mean a PhD is time consuming and stressful... However there is a possibility that I could make $100K down the road but that is just a possibility and it takes time to establish yourself to that level. Idk, in this economy it is certainly something I have to think about.

I wish I hadn't agreed to this date tonight. I wish I didn't care about other's feelings and put them ahead of mine all the time, maybe then I wouldn't wind up going out with someone I'm not into just because I'm afraid it will hurt him if I don't. I wish my friend had told me beforehand that he takes rejection well (kudos to him) and wouldn't be hurt if I didn't agree to go out with him. I really don't feel like paying 1000 yen to go see him or driving half an hour both ways. I need to learn to say "no".

Either way, I wish you the best in your decision!
I would also like to thank all you ladies posting info on foundation...since my no-buy has been in effect, my interest in makeup has grown...

I also realized that Im a brush fanatic. I dont invest as much money as I should on my brushes and I need to do better, but I loooove makeup brush sets!

and I'm just getting around to using a SUPERB makeup brush cleaner (fluid) I got over a month ago from Ricky's. NO MORE soap and water!!!!

It's more the primer I use, the type of foundation I use and the setting powder I use/don't use. It really depends. I do know that if I dont keep my brushes clean I break-out-- so I'm a fanatic about that.

I finally listened to Reeky and started oil cleansing. MAN!!! This stuff is BOMB for removing makeup and cleansing skin. It's like a 2 in 1!

By "scientific world" I meant academia and research oriented jobs. If you don't have more than a B.S. for those types of things you aren't going to as "respected" nor will you get many opprotunities for advancement. I also did not mean you would be treated poorly or rudely by others, but you won't obtain anything higher than a lab tech job or research assistant. You won't have your own lab or be able to have full control over the projects you work on, etc. Also, you get paid less for doing almost the same amount of work. I suppose instead of "second class citizen" I should have said "lower on the totem pole????".

Industry is an entirely different story. Engineers routinely are able to move up in a company with a B.S. in an industry type of job and are generally treated no differently in the amount of responsibility they have especially after gaining experience. However, even in industry a masters degree is sometimes handy and lets you bypass the required "years of experience" some job postings have. I've also heard that in industry, some people think it is a waste of time will others regret that they didn't get their masters...I guess that's just a matter of opinion?

Do you work in industry or academia?


Industry jobs for bioengineers aren't really that plentiful in relation to other engineers but it's growing. They showed us this website in seminar the other day.... I think chemical is the only on that is on the decline in job growth (by 2%). Anyway, it was really interesting if you want to take a look.

Going home tomorrow for a week. Get to visit my twin brother in Uni, get to see a new baby (cousin and his wife's), get to eat some Nigerian food, just get to relax in my home with my family where this 'shutting people out because I'm miserable' thing does not fly. I need it. I will have to carry on doing work while I'm there, but I CANNOT wait!

i've never had nigerian food, but some of it seems similar (visually & ingredient wise) to jamaican food.

note to self: don't start texting folks at 12am... you might f*ck around and end up texting until 5 am. also, change your text alert sound. aint no reason for me to be startled out of my sleep like that over a text. now i can't get back to sleep, and they're probably over there knocked, sleeping like a dang baby.

it's amazing how warm a pair of socks can make my whole bod feel.
I am really wondering if I should pick up my dog today or tomorrow
