    I can get it. It is hard.

    I recall this when I was writing my undergraduate thesis. The final push took faith. I had all the research but only wrote 5 pages close to the end but then that push made it happen. Went from 5 pages to 20 something pages in 4 days (didn't really sleep LOL).

    Anyway, I get you. Do whatever you need to get that push.
    My challenge is a little bit different, but the papers piece is certainly there. I've got that last one left so I'm trying to have it done and submitted early. Got some other things I need to focus on too...

    Hustling with no car in a driver's paradise is like asking Mr. Trump to use restraint, logic and reasoning while decision-making - you'll get some results but it's slow going.

    I figured that it would be different for you of course. I still wish you the best with all of it though.

    Thanks. It'll be fine and get taken care of. It's just that some of the veterans here can attest to this...Getting a graduate degree can be a solitary experience on some levels...

    It is. I'll send in my resume tomorrow. If nothing, just for grins. It's a technical managerial position.

    Gorgeous day to go for a training. If the weather holds up, I'm tempted to walk from the location to the train...It is a long *** walk though...

    If you get the job at Google you'll be the second person I know working for them. :)

    It was a 4.1 mile walk that took me 75 minutes.

    Okay so after I went through my exchange with the recruiter here is a small but important clarification.
    I got a call from a recruiter hired by Alphabet and not Google. They are looking for people to join a new company. Already that new company has created quite a bit of buzz in my industry. They want people with experience (which I think I have) in that particular industry/discipline and hence the cold call via Linkedin profile information.

    Ooh okay. Wow. It's kind of funny that you mentioned something about possibly trying something slightly different (I can't recall exactly how you worded it) and this pops up.

    Do you think it could be interesting to try it out?

    I walk fast, so that was a pretty solid time. It was a nice day and so I went for it. It was a longer walk than I thought, but it was a great way to clear my head - which was the ultimate goal.

    Yes, it was worth it.
