a slightly cheering thought

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;
to search out a matter is the glory of kings.

- Proverbs 25:2

When my thoughts turn to my research, I feel a knot in my stomach and a welling up of fear. I feel frustrated and ineffective, as the questions billow and the attempts to find answers either reveal more questions (best case) or reveal dead ends (better than nothing, I suppose). What it really amounts to is wasted time and nothing to show for it.

Perhaps I will feel more cheerful after our free lunch! :)


It is the nature of research, yes. It was just one of those days when it was the emotional downside of research, not the upside. :) Not a big deal...yesterday afternoon and today are looking better.

My advisors have a great track record with me of not just criticizing shoddy work, but also getting me restarted in a better direction. Thank God! :)
