thoughtful

Working and school

I've been working too much, I've also managed to actually register for a class at Caltech, which also increases my workload.

Though I enjoy the work, I do feel a bit alienated from others as when I move further away from the larger culture I have an increasingly difficult time feeling connected to others.

Though admittedly the gene that I'm doing research on ASPM is A major determinant of cerebral cortical size is something many people might find interesting. Though my temptation to at least fantasize about making other animals smarter I suspect would disturb many.

More realistically I can see how to use some of the software we've developed at work to do novel science.

Though for some reason this makes me feel nervous.
