When I was in kindergarten and primary school, I often watched my two older brothers play video games. Through small battles, they gained experiences and collected treasures to equip their characters with super power and weapons, in order to fight the monster at the final stage. The training I am getting now and everyday was just like the power and weapons in the video games. The difference is that my battles are in the academic field in the real world.
Another interesting thing was to observe hundreds of postdocs sitting in the same room for 8 hours. In normal days, I felt we work like moles in each individual's cave, not knowing anyone or seeing anyone outside the department. This training event gave me a sense of community because they were just like me, fighting the same battles day and night. I was empowered to keep on going.
