Gearing up again

I had a great meeting with CW yesterday, in which we covered a number of important bases - I told her a bit more about where I'm coming from, and she filled me in on certain organizational aspects of how the lab is functioning. We also started to sketch out some ideas for projects that will be useful for me but will also help the lab progress overall. It was something of a relief to finally be in a space where we could have that conversation. I think we both knew that it would go well, and it alleviated some of my early-arrival anxieties (a desire to to hit the ground running, essentially, and prove my worth because Imposter Syndrome).

So next, I need to determine how I'm going to juggle things: writing up stuff from Nebraska (and Arizona, for that matter), working with the undergrads and grad students here on current projects, and developing longer-term plans and an agenda that will situate me well, career-wise. Come to think of it, while scrottie and I were driving the moving truck, he had us listen to a lecture by some famous guy who was part of the highly productive Bell Labs area, and the famous guy said he scheduled in time every week for Big Ideas. Maybe that's what I'll do. We shall see.
