Antsy

This morning, my brain simply could not handle the logistics anymore. So I skipped rowing. We're going to have our first crack at the 1 am timepoint tonight, so going rowing would have meant: getting up early without a full night's rest, saddling up Froinlavin (haven't ridden her in a few months), packing breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as shoes, rowing clothes, and a sleeping bag and sleeping pad, then heading out to the boathouse. Oh, and then staying at the lab until probably around 2:30 am.

I feel like I shouldn't be so antsy already, given that it's only Tuesday. Circadian experiments are disruptive.

Re: hi
Hey! Sorry to have been so slow to respond, too. I'm trying to keep two experiments afloat at the same time, which is probably 1 experiment too many. I guess I am learning my limits? The hard part is that these things are dependent on a lot of lead-up logistics, so I basically just have to go for it even though I'm feeling overwhelmed and overloaded.

One comfort, though, is that I am going to go ride my bike around Iowa at the end of the month. I'm hoping that will be a good break!

I could NEVER handle the logistics you can handle. So I am impressed even on "lazy" days.

I credit stubbornness. :^)

And in addition, having routines. I developed a reasonably good routine in Texas for going rowing and then heading straight to work. It mostly just involves packing along a ridiculous amount of stuff. A side benefit has been that it's really easy for me to pack for travel because I already have the major necessities ready to go on a regular basis.

But other things have really fallen to the wayside recently. I'm not doing nearly enough reading or creative pursuits.
