Overwhelmed, Crazy in the Coconuts

I am now really in Chicago and dear me.  If I were to live my life by one saying it is, “Easily distracted by awesomeness.”

The problem is that there is so much awesomeness going on right now that I can’t keep up.

  1. I finally moved into the co-op.  My mind seems to explode with every conversation.  It is exhausting.
  2. I get to meet all sorts of cool people at work in the High Energy Density Physics community.  I am not sure I can keep up.
  3. I get to talk about scientific computing to everyone I meet.  Bootcamps here I come.  Dammit, more work.
  4. I am writing my first grant proposal to DOE.  My brain has fractured.
  5. Something secret I can’t talk about that will take a lot of focus.
  6. I am reading “The Nibelungenlied.”  As a connoisseur of epic poetry, I am thoroughly impressed by this translation.  I have been writing couplets because of it.

Not to say that everything in life is going perfectly, but all of this has left me in a catatonic state of saturation.
