My brain is turning to mush, and I can’t seem to stem the tide. I’ve been at Panera drinking coffee, trying to get my mind back in gear but the transmission is shot. I can’t even put together a coherent post for Poli-Think or write a decent cover letter to apply for the fellowship on

This is terrible. Seriously. The only saving grace is that I’m still smart enough to realize I’m losing it. Could this be early onset Alzheimer’s?

I think it would be okay if I just had something to focus on. If some one gave me something interesting and said write a paper, I think I could manage. Right now it feels like I’m drinking from a fire hose.

I promise I’ll be less whiny in my next post.
