Relaxed, and (sort of) ready


Well, believe it or not, I actually managed to relax on my trip to Chicago. I got to meet a number of other amateur (and one newly-professional) photographers, learned a lot, got a lot of great pictures, and re-invigorated my interest in my hobby, which had flagged a bit under the stress of working.

Unfortunately, I seem to be able to get really jazzed about only one thing at once: the motivation to work on Big Bad Chapter melted away, and only came back just today, when I got through a book on the subject of one of the subsections. In the interim, there were two whole days when I seemed to get nothing accomplished. Instead, I obsessively edited and posted photos, and staked out the photo posts of people who were on the trip. So, it seems only appropriate that this week's Onion contained the following article:

Uhh... yeah.

Sounds like a good trip, even if it did disrupt some productivity. The big question - as a lapsed photography buff - is do we get to see some shots on here?

Dr. C --

My photos do occasionally appear on the blog. I'll post one with this post later. But if you e-mail me(notoriousphd at mac dot com), I'll send you a link to my photos.

So it was a good trip! Excellent. BTW, I think working at work is a bad idea. Might set a dangerous precedent.

I agree with Belle: working at work -- why that's just plain crazy!
