My group research project about the Hyperloop is finally coming to a close. I think we have something pretty good on our hands but it's hard to tell - at this stage, most of what's written seems just obvious.

I had a good conversation with the head of department at my job last week. He was expecting me to quit because I'm starting my thesis soon, but I just want to put the job on hold until the end of the year. He repeatedly told me that I'm valued at the company and I am pretty sure that's something I can use as leverage once I graduate.

Speaking of graduation, I should really start fleshing out my proposal but all the other things in my life take up enough time and energy that I'm finding it hard to even begin with something so big. I am spending this Easter weekend back at home with family and friends. Hopefully that will help.

Peel off my tinfoil hat.

If I could, I would. I haven't found a smoking-gun counterargument to that. As I see it, the Hyperloop attempts to be a plane through a tube much more than anything else. (Whether they succeed is a different story, but the resemblance there.)
