Heres some PhD real talk....
.
I have always aimed to share an honest experience of my PhD and that means the ups and the downs. And yesterday was one of those downs, probably one of the lowest times throughout my whole PhD.
.
I preach about needing to be resilient in scientific research & usually I get straight back up on that horse and try again. But sometimes all of those rejections and such just mount up and get you down. 😫
.
Yesterday my publication that Ive been working on for around 18 months and collecting data 📊 for for 3.5 years got rejected 🙁 Now this is completely normal in research - sometimes you get rejected. Thats fine! But this one just got to me because the experiment one reviewer said strengthened my paper in the previous revision was the same experiment 🔬that caused it to be rejected now. It doesnt make sense to me. There must be something Im missing.
.
After years of trying to get this data out there, its making me question myself as a scientist 👩‍🔬. What am I doing wrong? What am I missing? Is it all worth it?
.
Okay - so its still bothering me a day later, but Im going to practice what I preach and not let this beat me especially now I can finally see the light 💡 at the end of the PhD tunnel! Onto the next journal! I will open that bottle of champagne 🍾 from my 18th birthday that Ive been saving for that exact occassion! Hopefully....

"I just have so much going on in my life right now." 😳

This excuse drives me mental! 😱

I just want to shake people and yell at them: "THERE IS A WHOLE LIFE OF FUN AND FREEDOM JUST WAITING FOR YOU!!"😁😁😁 Quick news flash,💥 you are ALWAYS going to be going through a rollercoaster 🎢 ride of highs and lows. There is no better time than now 👍 to start feeding your passions 💫 and drive yourself into the life you have always desired.
Stop saying "tomorrow", stop saying "eventually", stop saying "when the time is right". NOW is the time and im here to help you. 😍

In the last couple of weeks, I've been going back and forth between days where I feel amazing and like nothing can stop me, and days where I feel completely lost and like I have no idea what I'm doing.

Yesterday (when I meant to write this post) I was feeling the latter. Got MOST of what I wanted to done but it felt like such a struggle.

And that's okay. As much as I'd like to find some happy medium, I can't help it that I'm an emotional and passionate person. I just need to learn how to make that work for me.

I'm not sure what it was, but today I woke up feeling AMAZING. Good walk with Lilly, nice 25 minute yoga practice. Good breakfast, bought groceries, paid utilities, AND I've already got my workout done today.

So I guess you just gotta use what you've got, ride the wave. Accept the bad with the good. Stay focused, don't ever lose sight of the dream.

Just for a moment, let me stop you, I want to feel your warmth, kiss your lips, and don’t let you go... For a moment let me admire you, let me tell you that you look perfect so perfect for me, I want to step puddles on rainy days, jump on dry leaves in autumn, be hugged one more night... just love you as I have done so far, just wait a little more here with me...

A couple quick frames from a really awesome story coming this weekend at @covntchurch. Pumped to share it with you.

On a London bound train, returning from my brothers graduation. A Bachelor of Law at 47! Listen up young people. The system tells you to have some direction & worried parents have expectations. A tricky childhood, a failed restaurant business, 1000 jobs and a testing child custody battle led to this. Very proud of him. Me next! #nevertoolate #believe #work #enjoy #takerisks #focus #upsanddowns
