4 random vignettes
1. Overheard my advisor saying some things I wish I hadn't, but what else is new.
[insert cartoon headshake and appropriate sound effect here]
2. Had a PI talk to me like an actual colleague yesterday, that was fun and unusual.
3. Have an event coming up later in the month that should be science-fun, so I'm looking forward to that.
4. Have some backtracking to do of various sorts, both bench-wise and hard-drive-overfull-wise.
Sometimes backtracking experiments is nice, because reproducing results is always a relief (in that okay-good-I-didn't-just-imagine-that kinda way).
Computer-wise, I just hate that my memory is my weakest link, and over the years I have constructed elaborate systems to cope, using various levels of note-taking and other documentation.
But having to re-read all of that takes a lot of time, and often makes me feel like the main character in Memento when he discovers his tattoos and then realizes he put them there.
Oh yeah, these are my notes to myself... Right. Where was I. And how far will I get before I get distracted and forget again.
