But, this is where the balance issue comes in from serveal posts ago. The people who can’t stand having a house without curtains, and want to make them, see this life as unbalanced. Now, mind you, I think an R1 career is probably incompatible with someone who needs to make curtains and have children (it seems like you get to choose one hobby, and children counts as one). But, it just goes to show how different people order priorities. I think most swans are actually swimming furiously under the water. The question I wonder about is whether the waterfowl that are furiously struggling above the water are actually making progress, or, if like in ice-skating, one of the requirements is that you have to make it look easy.
