I thought that all was hunky-dory with my committee. I was pretty happy with the way it turned out, with four faculty members who get along and who all do interesting, relevant work that I respect and admire. But I guess sometimes I misinterpret situations, which is frustrating in any sphere of one's life, personal or professional. I have always been an independent worker, and living so far away from my university, I guess I assumed that certain things were OK when they weren't, not really. I hope it is all resolved now, but I am worried about my ability to correctly judge situations especially in academic settings where so many things are perceived in unexpected ways. Although I suppose I shouldn't be surprised by this; I'm talking about people who think for a living, after all.
