While gone away, I missed the statement about the top 100 botany blogs. Hundred botany blogs already? Great! Gone fishing on new reads, and noticed Seeds Aside was listed there.
It’s nice, but… wait a minute! Seeds Aside is listed in the student category!… Gosh! When do we start being something else than a student? I’ve defended my PhD five years ago, I’m getting close to the mid thirties, and parent of two kids, I’ve been alternating with various periods of post-doc and unemployment, and when I enter the teaching room these days, the students are… in front of me.
Would it be that it can’t be otherwise until you get tenured or what? Hum, maybe I should be just happy, and sing with Dylan ad noseam “Forever young“!
