As a new mother, I've noticed a curious trend. Very soon after my daughter
was born, the pressure on my husband to complete his disertation amplified
from all directions. At the same time, I found it difficult to meet the
academic schedule demands for my own coursework (in computer science). If
the baby has a bad reaction to a vaccination, the programming project just
isn't going to be completed on time.
How did I solve this problem? I've put my plans for advanced academic
studies of computational biology on hold, and am working for myself now.
Creating a new career can be frustrating at times, but has its own rewards.
One of them is that I set my own deadlines.
