Hur dur fuh wha? [circadian wrap-up]

By Wednesday, I was feeling the effects of all the traveling plus the prior week's circadian madness. In some ways, it was a good reminder that the costs of burning the candle at both ends will catch up with you sooner or later. I try to avoid reaching full burnout, but boy.

I did manage to get one thing finished, a rather important item. I went over the data that I'd just gotten back from our collaborator to see if there were any major issues or holes that needed to be filled by additional data-collection. I didn't see anything major, but just to ensure solid sample sizes and clear conclusions, I decided it would be wise to run one last circadian trial. So there went most of Thursday.

But now, I think I'm finished. I mailed off the last ten samples, but even if they get destroyed in transit, I don't think they're going to change any of our conclusions in any earth-shattering way. So unless something comes up when we go through the data and findings, I'm finished.

It almost makes me a bit sad, except I have so many other things on my plate that need attention that it's time to move on. Prior to sample destruction and cricket-rearing issues, I'd hoped to be finished by mid-August because these things take such a huge toll on me.


I am playing too much Zelda in my free time.
