Keys to the Kingdom.

8 July 2012

Hello everyone! Starting tomorrow, I will be guest blogging over at Scientopia’s Guest Blog for two weeks. For the first week, I’ll be writing about Evidence Based Decision making, and reading the medical literature. The reason I’ve chosen that topic is that I’m taking a short course this week, teaching exactly that. So essentially, I’ll be blogging my homework. I’m excited to take the class, because it will help me understand the physicians and epidemiologists I work with better.

I will also use that space to keep up my semi-didactic, semi-confessional writing about recovery from alcoholism. I think I might write about my experience being an alcoholic specifically in scientific, academic, and pedagogical situations. I’ve had some experiences, mostly pleasant, but usually a bit condescending, which I think might be worth relating. In general, I’m glad to have a forum like that to share. Hopefully, I’ll find an additional audience, that will complement the robust and exciting one I have now.

Sorry I’ve been quiet lately. Lots of unrelatable stuff going on, but nothing that deserves mention here. All is well. I’m in Michigan right now, went to a meeting tonight. Lots of dull crosstalk. But it was good to go. I shared a bit about my job situation. How I know I can’t control the situation. I can only do my best and rely on luck and diligence and karma. Just like I can’t control other people. I can only chose to accept them as they are, or disengage from them. Just as I cannot make anyone accept me as I am. I can only take what they offer, or disengage.

It’s a big strange world out there kids. I’m awfully glad I’m not in charge. See you at Scientopia!

P.S. I finally sold my wedding ring. My thoughts on that matter may be found here.
