The Price of Success

Do successful women intimidate and drive off men? So seems to be the theory of a friend of mine. She was talking about a friend of hers who is cute, highly successful (has a Ph.D, owns several houses, drives a nice car, etc), yet extremely single. And this woman is young to have achieved that level of success...only around 32. So is it the success that intimidates men? This is sad, because being successful seems to now come with a price. Maybe it's because men then feel that they have nothing to offer to the relationship when a woman is that successful. I don't know. In a perfect world, the man would be happy to have a woman that successful or a woman that just wants to stay home and raise a family.

It's like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife...

Why on Earth is everyone trying to set me up? Can't I be single? I was at Church today with my dad and my brother and an older gentleman was talking to my dad about his son and how I should meet and get to know him. It's just irritating.

I started my Bio class this past week and my days are dominated by work, class, and homework....repeat, repeat, repeat. I altered my work hours so I'm getting up at 6 am now which is no small feat for me for those of you who know how much I love to sleep. I get off work and then head straight to class + lab for six hours four days a week. I have no time to workout, meet up with friends, etc. But I'm actually welcoming this busyness.

The good news among all this is that I am actually enjoying what I am learning. I had this deep rooted fear that probably developed from high school and thought that I was not a bio person. In college during my undergrad studies, I avoided any hard sciences and did the easiest ones to fulfill my class + lab requirement (I did physical science and environmental science). Now, I am finding that I actually like, and, *gasp*, understand what I am learning. Maybe it's because I work for a biotech company and this relates to what I do everyday. Or maybe I'm liking feeling challenged because I haven't felt challenged in the longest time. Whatever the case, class goes until August 4th...I won't have a normal life until then, and frankly, I probably won't until I finish my master's degree, which will take about three years. It's scary to think and wonder where I will be after those three years. I'll have an MS in biotech and who knows what else...
