In my past blogs, I had lamented on the lack of career planning as I was going through my education. At this stage in life, I recognized the deficiency and immediately proceeded to over-compensate on the solution.  I made a significant decision during my apprenticeship at UC Irvine. I had decided that I wanted to proceed to graduate school. Not only that … I had planned out the duration of my stay (yeah… as if!)… how long to do a postdoc and where I wanted to do academic research… and oh yeah, not to mention marriage and the 2.5 kids somewhere in there. Yeah.
