I have degenerated into one of those people. You know, "Me and My ArtScience". Full of myself, incapable of making conversation unless it's about how I feel, how the prop is coming along. Realizing this has made me step back and try a few refresher courses on humility.

I'm such a terrible person sometimes. Thank goodness my friends are tolerant.

Summarizing things succinctly:

The prop exam date is scheduled for March 10. Props are due ~February 25. We are in crunch time.

I finished Prop #1 yesterday and handed it off to the very generous JR and [livejournal.com profile] kilroi for review.

Two more proposals to go. Prop #2 is mostly done. I need to research two major components. I'm giving myself until Friday.

I don't have much time for a life, but have persisted in keeping a semblance of one: exercise, eating healthy (75% of the time), and (a very successful experiment) meditation.

I don't know how I'll be handling all this once I go to Boston Feb 12-19. But Dr. J knows how crucial this time is, and he's in lab-trance mode now anyhow. And I'm very much looking forward to being able to take breaks, and just...see him there, smiling at me.

That is all.

Woe

My dearest Cannula,

I am so sorry that I killed you today. I did not mean to!

I had doubted you, when I should not have. I am sorry that I subjected you to the Aqua Regia. It was a moment of stupidity and profound pain for me; after all, have you not served me well these past three years? And how it pains me to think that I reward your enduring, unending service by stripping your insides with harsh corrosives!

I will avenge you, dearest. Your death was needless, but it will not be in vain! The laser shall pay for making me distrust you!

Good night, sweet cannula, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!

Love,
Me
