I don't have a very good memory. I rarely remember what I had for breakfast, and if you ask me about yesterday's activities, wheewy, forget about it. I'm still angry with the Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVD sets, because they left out the "previously on Buffy" segment at the beginning of each episode. How am I supposed to remember what's going on without it?
But one upshot of ... whatever I was talking about ... is that I'm continually surprised by the effortlessness of my own accomplishments. I'll get notification that I won a contest that I don't remember entering. Or discover a half-written project on my hard drive that's brilliant but not something I remember doing. Or I'll wake up one day and, oh, look at that, I have a dissertation written, several published papers, and a PhD, and all I had to do was wake up.
I probably had some deep, insightful point in mind to end this post with, but, well, you know.
