Bleh, I was hoping to update more this week, but things just got INSANE.
Monday I spoke with an advisor, and then with a new lab, and then came home to contemplate my decision. The next day I suffered through class, still largely undecided ("but I'll hurt his feelings..."), then made my decision and marched (okay, skulked is a closer description) into my PI's office to tell him what the deal was. (He's a younger Asian guy, and he talks really fast, so keep that in mind as you read this.)
Me: "Hi, I wanted to talk to you for a second... I just wanted to let you know I've decided to end my rotation early--"
PI: "Right, right, okay that's fine, yeah, yeah."
Me: "...Um... Okay. Well, tell Daria it was good to work with her, and--"
PI: "Right, okay that's fine, that's good, yeah, okay."
Me: "Um, right. Bye then!" *runs away*
Luckily I never have to go back there, so I never have to determine why he blew me off as I was attempting to explain to him why I was leaving. Perhaps he expected me to switch labs, perhaps he just didn't care. At any rate, that was Tuesday afternoon. After that I went to class and then retreated home to recover.( The rest of the week was better. )
Oh yeah, and P.S. here are the results of the quizzy thingy you guys filled out. Thank you! (I know it's all kind words, so I won't thank you for them, but I do thank you for taking the time to click on them. :-P )
