busy

This week has seemed really busy for me, so I'm way behind on lj. This morning I still had 275 unread entries on my friends page... although now it's down to about 175. Need new filtering of some kind. Been sick most of last week and this week, gave a little talk/presentation on orbifold GUTs yesterday to the other theory students here.

Our paper on Baryogenesis was published by JHEP today... much quicker turn around time than the last paper I was involved with. I'm proud to have scraped out a publication in high energy theory during my 20's, even if it is 2 days before the end of my 3rd decade on the planet. Speaking of which, this is not something I'm looking forward to. Although, I've decided that I'm turning 28 on Sunday, since subtracting a year seems like a more fun way to celebrate birthdays from here on out, rather than adding a year which would be way too scary and make me think that I'm turning into an adult or something(!) I can't wait to see whether my 20's will be as good the second time through as they were the first time.

More later when I get a chance... Bruce Damer speaking tonight at our Future Salon, 7pm. Borders Bookstore, Santa Cruz. Title: "Will Bona-Fide Life Evolve Out of Human Technology?"

How do you tell whether or not they're unread? (Is this a feature only for paid accounts?)

At the top of each page on the Friends Page it says something like Below are 25 friends' journal entries, after skipping by the 125 most recent ones. When I sit down to read entries, I just click "previous" until I get to an entry I know I've read before, and then start reading there. Then just look at the top to see where I am, if I'm curious.

Congrats on the paper's getting published! Sounds like a great salon discussion too, I'd like to get involved in some of those if there are some closer to me.

I'm in my mid twenties, starting to have a quarter-life crisis and reflect on how I should be making more of myself. I like your reverse birthdays though ;)

By the way, happy birthday! Hope it's going well.
