What Brings You Here?



Some of my roommates.



As I was poking around on my site hit meter, I realized that the most popular search phrase that brings people to my site this week is not what you might expect, but instead it is died mice smell and similar such phrases. Oh, joy.

What brought me here was a search for medical informatics blogs. But what keeps me is your lovely bird posts (I <3 Birds!!!!) and like tabor says, your passionate, intelligent and patient posts.

Well Ms. Owl, I would think all the talk of dead mice would have you more excited. I know thats what brought me here. I mean, why would anyone want to be blinded with SCIENCE when there are more stinky matters to consider? :-) You're an inspiration to those of us who wish to stay in academia, even if you are having a hard time at it. Keep up the good work.

Tabor and Comet; you are not using google to find me!

Psilo; I am an inspiration? Seriously? Daily, I am ready to disappear from the planet, thinking that no one would even notice my absence or, if they did notice, they wouldn't care. Your comment gives me something to think about.

You're still trying your best to stick with what you want to do. Even if you're not recognized or supported for it, it seems like you do it really well too. You have the passion and creativity that makes for great teachers. It is sad that teachers are not better supported in our society, especially the good ones. I think teaching should be a highly competitive and well rewarded discipline. Just because you can't make it doing what you want to do doesn't make you a failure. It is a failure of opportunity. You are trying your best and doing your job well. That is the inspiration I speak of.
