At Least I Haven't Used Hot Pokers on Myself - Labradoris

Yesterday Joel and I spent almost every waking moment on campus working during the day.  I had a client report I needed to work on, and he was prepping conference materials.  One of our undergraduate RAs (research assistants) expressed interest in watching while Joel did data analysis for one of our studies, so she came to campus and watched as Joel walked her through the procedures.
Afterward, I gave her kudos for being willing to go to campus during Spring Break - not many graduate students or faculty are willing to do it.  She nodded and said, " kinda sucked coming up here, but I'm glad I did."  I smiled in agreement and thought to myself, "Yeah, graduate school sucks sometimes...a lot of the time...but I'm glad I'm doing it."
