Over the weekend, I sat for hours and thought hard. I had three other projects on my plate... could I handle a fourth? Especially one as big as a PhD course? Worse, it was to be done on a part-time basis.
In the end, I realised that I was being too greedy, wanting everything. But like an over-ambitious juggler, if I try to have too many balls flying up in the air, I may end up with all of them falling on the ground.
Well, it isn't as if the PhD has an expiry date. So back on the shelf those dreams go. Again.
But, guys, I still want my books back. I still want to do some research.
