      I think you have to work hard to get where you want to be at any job. Some parts were harder than others. I spent almost 8 years at University doing first my degree (3years), then a Masters (1 year), then my PhD (3.5 years), and that’s only until you get your first job. There were times when it is difficult and you’re working really hard but science has always had an enjoyment for me and I can honestly say that there’s rarely ben a day where I haven’t wanted to stay in bed and not come to work, so although sometimes it’s hard, I can think of a lot worse things to do!
