Long Days & Cranky Nights

Well I was all going to try and be interesting today, but no such luck I fear. Yesterday I ended up taking the late late train. Ok not that late, but I didn’t get home until about 7:30 or so. I think that will be about the plan today as well.

My publication paper I think was due yesterday. I mistakingly asked for comments by Friday, but apparently I had forgotten about this accelerated approval schedule that was sent down from the heads above where it needed to be done by yesterday. I’m not going to get into it as this blog is public and people at Fermilab read it, but yeah, I guess that’s on me. No shocker there that I’m a disappointment yet again to the collaboration. Sigh.

I am also working on the theory section of my thesis. I have 70 days until my thesis is due. So just over two months. Yes that is a lot of time. However, my understanding of any kind of theory in high energy physics is so far gone that I am freaking out about it. I know I just need to get done with the theory section so that I can feel better about the thesis is general but I don’t feel like I’m ever going to get it.

Jason being the perfect man that he is had dinner ready for me when I got home and had cleaned up the house. I responded with being a bitch and went to bed mad...and for no reasone really. So that’s spectacular. I WAY got the better deal in that marriage. Poor Jason.

So right. Cranky? Obviously.

I think I’ll get home around 7:30 tonight, throw some food down and then we are going to ride our bikes to the gym and do some working out. Going to try for that circuit type training that we did on Saturday. Felt great and got the heart rate up.

I guess sure, I only have 70 days to finish my thesis....BUT the other side of that coin is that in 70 days....the thesis will be done, the paper will be done and I’ll just have to work on my dissertation presentation....and after that. I’m done with this. I never thought that there would actually be an end in sight.

You're obviously not a dumbass! (I figured that out and I don't even know you - LOL.) Keep at it - there is light at the end of the tunnel. Plus you can probably outrun all the other *super-geniuses* in your lab, which is WAY cooler! ;)
