love, money and lie

系里circulate的招聘邮件。post-doc,一年的薪水税前$45000。在我的人生计划里做到post-doc的时候要35岁。35岁,在职业生涯第十年的时候一年薪水45000,还是税前。明明白白一望了然的贫穷。
我非常了解为何art historians都嫁富家门或是出来就去博物馆。本来学的就是奢侈的东西,如何过贫穷的生活。
我一点也不想过贫穷的生活,更何况我现在是非常贫穷却每月上缴14%的税。
今日见了导师,谈了明年的想法。导师就问了句你有钱吗。
问到心坎上。

    well, look back 10 years or 5 years even, could you have foreseen what you are doing currently? life take turns when least expected. so relax. all will work out.by the way, i might not be able to go to Singapore after all because i don’t have a valid visa to come back here. remember this may you were freaking out about visa for Japan? i’m like that, only less crazyi’ll try but if i can’t go i can’t goman i wish visas don’t exist. i’d rather have computer chips planted in my arm so that i don’t need to deal with all the visa crap
