Missing being in India big time during Diwali. But i'm headed to my sister's place this evening and that should help.
The zero-expectations policy is helping. No expectations from experiments, from people, from systems..yeah.
I wallow in self-pity every now and then only to snap out of it when I see that I have precious little to complain about. Sure it sucks to be away from B and to be stuck in a rut at work, but really? I have a lot going for me and need to remind myself of it all every time I go down the self-pity party path.
I think of lutom a lot these days. I sometimes miss the security I felt there. A good bunch of friends to hang out with, more money than I do now, and happier lab-life....But then again, there were a different set of struggles then. I have reminders all over this blog :)
I am *this* close to calling in sick at work today, but I will drag myself to work and get busy and keep on keeping on.
