Every Silver Cloud...
Greetings. I know...I know, let me explain it like this:
+ Silver Cloud: Got a filler role basically doing annotation for a project here. It's decent money.
- Grey Lining: Earning money requires time, time that is taken away from my actual research work.
+ Silver Cloud: My most recent strange results may be explained by an error in the processing I made before analysis.
- Grey Lining: I made an error in the processing before my most recent linguistic analysis, so I'm going to have to do it again.
+ Silver Cloud: Before that point I was making great progress getting lots of data.
- Grey Lining: Unfortunately data needs to be written up, put in tables, discussed at length and explained in detail.
+ Silver Cloud: Coming up with a snazzy thing is cool
- Grey Lining: Being able to sustain it, not letting it become just a fad, is tough.
