Check out this sentence, submitted in a personal statement: “My illustrious acomplishments in other fields always convince myself that I can also achieve success by making good use of my ability and wisdom. But, after hardships and crucifixion in the lab, I eventually make it clear that Biological Research is not based on creativity but irksome and humdrum moil: painstakingly designing the process, taxingly validating the seeming accurate results, time and time rising out of the depression of failure, working late into the night.”
moil? Cruxifixion? oh dear.
