Too late at night for so many thoughts

Life is strange.

I read a piece in Sciature (cannot recall which) recently concerning the average time length of hugs- 3 seconds, apparently. The article went into some detail about this magic time interval of 3 seconds being found all over the show, and made the offhand note of it being the 'timing of the human spirit'.


I do relate to the snapshot theory of life experiences, though- most of the day passes without your notice and suddenly you find yourself fully cognizant of the moment and struggling to type, in bed, on your iPod. (taking longer than 3 seconds, I promise you)

And note, my summation of this situation in light of current events:

A PhD is like a dream- some parts mystical, some fantabulous, and some parts so nightmarish all you wish is to wake up. And like a dream, one day you do awake to find you are both 25 years elderly and in the fourth year of your thesis studies.

Christ, just hit the blessed snooze button.
