Research=Hell (and) Hell=Research

I am convinced hell will consist of one or perhaps both (if you are in need of extra punishment) of the following options:

1) An eternal research project which will never end but yet will have ever looming deadlines. There will be an eternal literature review in conjunction with an eternal research proposal and defenses and absolutely endless data collection and analysis.

2) An eternal car ride in a small compact car going nowhere. Just endless driving, FOREVER. No bathroom breaks, no getting out to stretch your legs, not even asking where you are, because you are NOWHERE. No scenery, no snacks, no magazines, just you and the car. Perhaps for extra punishment there will be a couple of people you really don’t like to fight with for eternity.

I’m not really sure which of these options would be worse. Its a toss up.

I have a research project that I had to do this semester- presenting on it on Monday. You're right, research is a lot like hell! I just say that my professor must really like me cause for the section on data analysis and statistics he wrote a lot of XOXOX's in his notes and suggestions... :)
