We had a seminar yesterday.

Really smart guy from Wyoming investigating acidity and basicity in C-H activation. Very similar to what we do

Remember when I said I’d been stuck in a rut earlier?

Well most of that is because I’ve been trying for months to stop a side reaction
As I watched the seminar and saw all of the work that had been referenced in this field, I realized that I didn’t really need to stop the side reaction (yet)

What we have already is still fresh. Still innovative, and still pretty fuckin cool.

And we should publish it.
Sometimes you need to see what others are doing in your field to gain perspective about where you are

When you try for a really long time to figure out a problem and you keep missing, it’s difficult to continue to tell yourself to try again.

Had a great time visiting my fam but man am I ready to be home 🏡
I know I missed some of my atl friends this trip I’ll catch y’all during Christmas 😂
I went to go visit my grandma’s grave while I was home and it made me think

Why do we visit graves? It’s pretty obvious that the soul you’re visiting is long gone. You’re only in the presence of a shell.

Or do the souls know we come back to visit and meet us there?
