It's so good to finally

It's so good to finally be working again. Between Christmas and Chambana and intersession and Hawai`i and interviews, I pretty much hadn't gotten anything significant done for two months. Which made it that much harder to get started again---I was staring at the screen, reading notesfiles and web comics obsessively and in a non-multitasking way. Finally, though (yesterday, really), I managed to gain purchase and now I'm back to my old system. Namely, work until I have to wait for something---a download, a compile, a run---and then switch to the notesfiles or comics or whatever until that's done. I've got a compile running as I type this sentence, but I've already switched back and forth between typing this and working three or four times over the course of the post.

So anyway, it really is nice to be back. Now let's see if it's true what I said about it being possible to finish the thesis by mid-May. :)

"Kids are sent off to spend six years memorizing meaningless facts in a world ruled by a caste of giants who run after an oblong brown ball, as if this were the most natural thing in the world. And if they balk at this surreal cocktail, they're called misfits." --Paul Graham Posted by blahedo at 11:57pm on 20 Feb 2003
