Hard work paying off?

My hard work in lab is starting to pay off. I'm on the verge of a huge finding. I will do whatever it takes to see it through. In the meantime, I'm finishing up some experiments to finish up the manuscript and submit my 2nd paper. This third project looks like it will culminate into an awesome 3rd paper. It seems so much more than JBC. If I get some mice in there, JCI. Diabetes? Cell Metabolism maybe? I have big aspirations. I'm so excited. It's fueling me onward. I feel so OCD lately. I've been filing all the hundreds of papers I've ever read into a big database and outlining them. I'm making my own textbook. I'm also writing up all my own protocols (I sort have these already but it's not typed up neatly). This stuff is getting addictive. If anyone has any info about the AMPK pathway in adipocytes, I'm all ears.
I snuck in a run last night. I'm getting stronger. Jason said he noticed I had a quicker pace. Maybe I can have my cake and eat it too.

Sounds good. It's funny how sometimes our subconscious takes over and its like you're on autopilot. Kinda like that inertia thing you talked about a while back. Things in motion stay in motion.

Yeah, I'm in lab motion even if everything else is out of whack.
