Feeling like Scrat

This picture sums up how I feel about my PhD.

 Like an acorn-obsessed saber-toothed squirrel-rat.

Everyday I feel like I am almost able to reach the acorn and it somehow slips again and I have to look for it over and over.

Being specific, narrowing it down to a certain topic, context, team, individual, process, characteristic, relation.

And then the ice breaks and I have to build my argument from scratch.
