Should I be insulted that Vincenzo didn't ask me if I'm interested in doing a PhD here? Even though I probably wouldn't want to do it, it's a big commitment and stuff, but he said we desperately need a couple of fellows, maybe a post-doc and someone to do a docterate here, and did I know anyone who'd be interested. I guess he already has me as STAFF, so if I switched over he'd have to replace my spot on the payroll. Hrm.
No, I don't want to do a PhD in this field, MS maybe, that's a definite possibility, but not a PhD. Perhaps I'll see the lay of the land and bring that up to him as a possibility.
Do I just not come across as grad-school material?
