I really, really dislike my research. I constantly find excuses to avoid doing it. But my advisor is such a great guy, and I'm not sure there's a better one than him in the whole department. But, again...I get no pleasure or satisfaction whatsoever out of what I'm working on with him. Part of it is that I find the stuff really uninteresting...another part of it is that I just don't think I'm any good at it. What should I do? I have my master's degree (in math), and if I write my dissertation, I have my Ph.D...but again, another 1 1/2 or 2 years of this crap might drive me crazy. Has anyone been in a similar situation and can give some advice?
