This semester has been full of surprises....although I was already aware, I have come to realize persons of stature, like Jim Nichols, will help if you ask. I suppose, you must ask in a nice tone, but that's obvious.
This semester I have spoken with quite a few potential Ph.D. advisors from across the country. Although stressful, these conversations have been enlightening, and quite refreshing! It is interesting to get a taste of what's in their minds, if only briefly. Maybe one day I will be on the other side and it will still be refreshing to hear what's on the minds of young ecologists?
That's all, folks.
