I’ve wanted to write lately and I will get back to it soon, but I had to not write for the last week for a number of reasons surrounding grad school happenings that have been less than fun. I’ll get into details later. Glorious details no one cares about but the people I know, but are still preposterous and that I have to get out for therapeutic reasons.

My thesis proposal is righteously and repeatedly kicking me in the cock. However, it will all be over with soon and I can get back to writing for this thing once in a while.
Specifically, I need to stop drinking like I’m 20. I’ve had at least three nights in recent memory that I really don’t fully remember (so, should that be “memory”…?), the most recent of which I may have slept with someone from my program. Oops? Ah, whatever, it’s all good and I assume we’ll still be cool.
More than anything, I just don’t understand how I was physically capable of pulling off sex. I was a full three sheets to the wind, and thought it was a dream until she said goodbye when she left this morning.
I, on the other hand, didn’t really wake up until 2fuckingPM. Yeah, it was one hell of a night. One I really need to stop having. Too old for this shit.
Totally forgot about my blog for the longest time. I’m not sorry.
Grad school has been kicking my ass and post-divorce Chad has just started dating again, so the combination has really wreaked havoc on anything that could be considered “blogging time.”
But I am really getting deep into my thesis project, so I will be talking more about that in the near future if anyone is interested in the cellular physiology underlying Parkinsons Disease. If you are, cool. If not, join the club of not giving a shit like everyone else.
So I’ve been doing nothing for the past two days but pack and get ready to move tomorrow. It’s a new day. A new me, and I can’t wait.
Really not looking forward to moving all my shit tomorrow though. That aspect is going to suck ass.
So I’ve kind of realized something in the past week: I haven’t been on a real date in about a decade.
A motherfuckin’ decade!
Now I’m really quite conscious of this and not quite sure what to do about it. Is the best course of action to just play it cool and say “whatever happens happens and I’m alright with that” or is that not the right attitude?
Just wondering for the next time I find myself out with a woman and unsure of how to handle myself.
In other news, I get my new apartment keys tomorrow, and move in next Sunday. Jesus, so many things I still need to buy. And then the wife and I need to sort out what stays and what goes. That’ll be a blast…
Dude, I really need to do this more often. All day I’ve just been chillin’ in Michigan as I catch up on news, check out the new neuroscience literature, look over old ideas and notes, make dinner for my parents, and end dinner with a decent discussion about healthcare and the philosophy of science.
Goddamn I love this type of freeform vacation. Now I’m taking it easy in a beautiful Herman Miller lounger, drinking a (albeit not great) domestic microbrew, in a spacious and beautifully designed house while I write this post.
Grad school may be a huge pain in the ass, but right now it seems a million miles away. Maybe I should do a little write-up about my newest proposal that will one day hopefully shed a little light on the etiology of Parkinson’s Disease and give science a new target in its prevention.
Interestingly enough, I’ve been told by a number of people, some of whom don’t know I’m getting divorced, that I sound happier now. I had no idea I seemed less than happy over the past few years, but it was apparently obvious to other people. Good to know. Now I just need to ride this upswing in my life and really take advantage of what it is offering.
