Today I ate lunch with a nice professor-man from Georgia Tech. He told me about grad school, planning your life, and how you only have so limited a time to do research because it is like the olympics. I mentioned I had two research interests, and he was kind enough to warn me that then I must not be any good at one of them. At least one of them. But, he comforted me: it’s okay for now, because now is a good time to spread my wild academic oats.

Would you like some of my academic oats? I hear they probably aren’t any good.
