The biggest joke of my life is, I actually became an engineer. Wait, it’s not over yet, the greatest one is yet to come, which is….. “I am working as a researcher for more than a year”. Funny, huh? That girl, who barely passed the 4th grade, with two F grades in “English grammar & Literature” in two consecutive term exams (PS: We have three terms in the school curriculum of our country), is working as researcher lol :p Not only that, sometimes she even writes research paper! I think now you can understand why my English is so lame. 😉 How did I come here, it’s whole other different story, which I explained in parts in some articles in this blog. But here I will describe about the life of a researcher:
- There are so many things in a researcher’s life, and the worst of the worst of them is, “I am supposed to work with something new, that no one ever heard of”. Like, seriously? Even when I am a makeup freak, I never did really buy anything without checking any review, that girl has to work with a new thing? You gotta be kidding me -_- So, the beginning of a any researcher life is all about searching!
- Now, when you actually, find some topic, you need to make it work. C’mon, you have to let the world know about your research by writing a paper or an article, huh! 😉 That’s when you realize, even you have a topic, you have no idea, how to make it work!
aww, poor researcher! 😦
- Conflict of “what you are supposed to do” vs “what you actually do”.
Research laboratories usually have enough food and free WiFi, which makes them a perfect resting place. -_-
- Your parents and relatives will always assume that you are some kinda super hero, who alone is saving this planet by all her research and almost 8 hours of lab duty. Every time you talk with them over phone you will sense their anxiety about how you are managing all these big matter all by yourself and also that how proud they are about you.
where in reality:
- In research life, your Professor is always the boss. And to him/her, no matter how much study you’ve done, you are just ‘JON SNOW’, who knows nothing at all.
After a long meeting of hearing your work progress and future work plan, his/her reply will be:
- The most difficult thing to cope with is when your partner is also a researcher, with a tight schedule. There will be days when he stays in his lab almost 20 hours in a day and comes home only to take rest and you’re like:
But, no matter how much difficult it is, at the end of the day, life is beautiful and it will always give you a reason to live the best of it. 🙂
Hope you enjoyed the post!
