A Career in Science Will Cost You Your Firstborn
“I hate science.” In six years of graduate school, this has to be the phrase I’ve heard most frequently from my colleagues.
People who have dedicated their lives to science.
People who made a decision when they were about 16 years old to focus on science, who went through four years of undergrad and an average 6 years of graduate school, and 4-10 more years of training.
People who’ve spent every moment since 2000 entirely dedicated to making new facts using the scientific process.
“I hate science.” Why this instead of, “I love science?”
