A friend who lives in another city emailed me today because she was worried that something had happened to me. She pointed out that I had done no blogging in month. I guess that’s a pretty big hint.
So let me apologize for my laxity in writing. I have no good excuse. Yes, I have been busy, but the fact is that I’ve just had a little trouble working up the energy to blog recently. It does take effort, doesn’t it?
So let me try to restart things by filling you in on the personal matters, especially those relating to my career. Hopefully it will give you a little window into the world of the academic physician.
First off, the good news: I have 2 papers basically accepted for publication! The first is that same old paper I have been trying to get published for ages. What a riggamarole I went through! I won’t give too much detail here, because I just can’t, but let me say that it was refused for a third time, then reconsidered, then accepted with rewriting, and now I am just awaiting the final word that it has been finally accepted so that I can sign the paper work and get it published. Yippee!
