What to do with my life?

I previously documented that I recently had a bike crash. While I’m not exactly sure what happened, I do know that I hit my head hard enough to knock me unconscious for over 20 minutes. While not nearly as dramatic as the events in the presentation below, they have had a profound impact on my life.



I’ve been doing a lot of thinking in the interim, and realized that I wasn’t happy with the path that I had chosen (academia). Actually, I have been unhappy with the academic life for some time, but haven’t had the courage to do anything about it. I t was easier to keep flowing with the current.

The crash changed that. I will not be returning next semester; I will not be finishing my PhD. I don’t know what I’ll end up doing. I have no immediate plans. I will be unemployed come January 1.

My future awaits.
