Sparkle - Don't give one professor the power over you to cause you to change the track you want your life to take. If you decide this program isn't the thing for you, or that you want to do something else for your own reasons, that's one thing. But, don't let mean, socially insensitive power trippy professors make those decisions for you! You are amazing, and you will find your footing. Be gentle with yourself.
It seems like there is a lot of upheaval in Dingo work land right now. I'm happy our part in that is starting to calm down at least. DH is loving his new job. He's learning tons, likes the people he is working with, is well supported by the company (I think they actually wanted him to succeed!). They are based out of Israel, so one of the big training classes is in Tel Aviv. He will be going there towards the end of October for a couple of weeks. I'm jealous!
Editing to add my own RR: Boot camp on Tuesday, Tri class on Wednesday, and spin class this morning. At tri class, we did the mile assessment. I ran there (a mile) to warm up, then the test, then jogged home. I did it in 9:49, and was pretty disappointed because it sure felt like a better than 9:49 effort. This was short lived, because one of the coaches said that it was over a mile. They thought it might be more like 1.1 miles. This puts me on an 8:55 pace for the mile (which is more like what it felt like!). I'm going to go out and measure it more exactly sometime. I'm all lost without my Garmin right now!
