Ok! Last weekend I went to Gainesville for a conference. I was expecting it to suck (as per last year) and therefore I would get some time to post. But no! It was freaking fantastic. Here is the fallout. Ok maybe fallout isn’t the best term for a nuclear engineering congress…
Well, it seems as if the Austin Experiment turned out to be the Grand Illusion. I expected to be more upset, I suppose, but really, it is another data point in the convergence loop of my life (more on this later).
So rather than being all bent out of the shape, I am determined to go North of the Wall and maybe find me a unicorn or something. Really I only have one more year here in Austin and then the entire world is open to me! How fucking pimp is that?! Yo, werd!
More seriously, I can easily fill a year with research. I can think of at least 4 full papers that I want to write in the next year. Hopefully at least two of these will pan out.
So it is clear that the conference motivated me. Good. It did.
I have about a month before I go up to defend my PhD proposal. Luckily, I have so many potential avenues to exploit, writing the document in the next week and half, shouldn’t be a problem in the least. It is looking like I am gonna do this thing; I am going to get my PhD! Victory!
