Just as an FYI, I am actually still alive (in case you were wondering). I’m just incredibly busy at the moment. I dream about a time, someday, when December won’t be an incredibly busy month. Unfortunately, I live in the great bubble of academia. A busy December is as inevitable as entropy making a mess of my kitchen.
So currently, the majority of my life consists of putting everything I’ve done over the past year into 5000-10000 words. This involves much LaTeX-based chicanery, diagrammatic mayhem and (so I fear) the exhuming of at least one or two output files to check some values. It’s probably a good thing I keep my .out files in order. It also involves writing. Lots of writing. So much writing, that I fear I’ve hurt my wrist. I should probably do some stretches and spin some poi to stay limber.
One blessing at least. The references will be easier to do this time. Having papers already written (published and unpublished), at least I can leaf through them to find the relevant references. Frankly, that will probably save me at least a day’s work!
