Downward Spiral

1). Exam invigilation season
2). My self-imposed thesis deadline (12 weeks away) which seems like enough time but is already starting to make me feel stressed
3). Multiple papercuts
4). Shower out of order at home
5). Increasing tiredness
6). Empty wallet
7). Remembering three days ago that I agreed to give a talk to a high school Maths Club in February
8). Lack of superpowers
9). Daily wondering about life post-PhD
10). The heat death of the universe

On the sunny side of the street: one can listen to Kevin Max's new album online for free (The Blood, click here); Dinosaur Comics has been updated daily and has been consistently funny since the new year; I have nearly twenty things for my list of 101 things; and that's all I can think of right now.

(the heat death of the universe is not a contributing factor to my downward spiral at the moment, it just popped into my head because of Annie Hall and also the short story "Galactic North" by Alastair Reynolds)

A brighter disposition soon!
