Just to note Izzah,
'You're not going to do admin work for the whole life, it's not going to bring you anywhere"- prof rumi.
Only research would take you higher and up. Remember that. Just remember that in times where you may feel loss about you research. Just remember this.
Just a point for myself, to not give up and remember the end. Just like the second habit of highly effective people: Begin with the end in mind - Stephen Covey.
