knocking on wood

Alas, after four years of post-grad hell, I've realized that I really have no interest in doing research. Or doctoring. For the first time in my life, I feel like I'm the one in total control of what's going on--no more lingering parental hopes/guilt trips tugging at my conscience, no more "What ifs" holding me back. I'm getting out of the business (well, I'll still be in it, technically) and getting into the things I want to do--writing novels and taking photographs. And maybe even art.

The short version is, if I can find a job as a lab tech somewhere while I scrape together the funds for an art degree/photography course/equipment, I'm outta here. If I can find someone who's willing to take on an amateur photographer, all the better....
