Quick Update: Still Alive

With the mad rush of everything, I haven’t been making enough time to sit down and write.  It’s a weird dynamic.  I feel much better after I’ve written something, but I have recently found myself too stressed, too tired, or too miserable to write.  We need some way of bringing the future psychological reward of an activity back through time to immediately before you undertake the activity.  Get cracking, STEM nerds.

I keep feeling like I haven’t achieved very much this year.  And it’s weird how that feeling — a feeling which often severely interferes with my day — doesn’t align with objective facts.  Although it has been an extremely rough year for me personally, I got my postgrad degree, started two more postgraduate degrees (but one of them is a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice, so it doesn’t really count), and am now more firmly on the pathway to my PhD.  It feels like those achievements were so long ago; I graduated in July.

Anyway, I hope you are all well.  Write back soon.
