Back at the helm of the ship that's my life. Have been swimming more lately, which is now a lot nicer with my new Tim Ferriss-approved swim goggles. Started to read more, as an experiment I'm reading with my eyes again instead of reading solely audiobooks. Love the way I easily highlight things and hop them over to my notes system easily on my iPad.

It did make me realize what an impatient reader I am with ebooks; as soon as there's some parable, or a paragraph that's easily predictable, I jump over or skim almost as a reflex. On the other hand it's not just me: the type of books I've been reading (self-help & business) are unbearable otherwise. Gotta dig through a lot of ground to find the gems.

Almost forgot: the academic paper I'm writing based on my thesis is now in 1.0 phase. One round of serious internal reviews by the co-authors and we'll probably submit it to an international journal. (If it survives the review round.) Regardless of where it goes from here, I'm happy with what I've accomplished.
