I have run out of words. Seriously, this is rare for me - I tend to ramble on and on, but today? Nothing, nada, zilch, zippi-dee-doo-dah. You see, I have classes. And research. And a super cool fellowship. And then my advisor just dumped two grant / fellowship proposals on me, both due 2-3 days after my wedding. So the words? They're ending up on paper, but not the fun kind - words like elucidate and characterize and global warming and radiative effects and remote marine aerosol and blahblahblah.
I think I even put myself to sleep thinking about the words. And simultaneously a panic attack thinking about the proposals. Seriously, how do academics get anything done?? You must spend all your time writing grants to get money, writing papers so you can justify getting more money, going to conferences to talk about the papers so you can justify getting more money and no wonder so many professors don't have enough time to teach!
So words. Evidently I do have some, but they're of the waving hands wildly above my head in a panic kind. My apologies. Here, have some cake!
