Sad, funny, yet true

I just got back from a "training session" at U Ottawa which dealt with being a TA, and the philosophical foundations thereof (or something like that). Wasn't bad at all, and I'm going back at 3 o'clock (one of the many advantages of living 5 minutes away). Funny thing is I don't know what kind of assistantship I'm going to get: I could be a library gopher.

On a somewhat related note, I thought this comic was delightful because it is humorous yet rings true, especially for me (or someone at my stage of the game).

hopefully your assistantship isn't too much work and you can just focus and enjoy your first year. a TA would be good.

Or maybe not (he says, rolling his eyes cynically).
