I think my head is falling off

Yeah, I think my head is falling off and I can't sleep! Motha fucker! Someone help me sleep. I think I am going to start taking medication. I used to not be able to sleep but now I often walk up for hours in the middle of the night.

I spent Saturday recovering from staying up till ~5am on Friday. From drinking not from insomnia, haha.

I spent Sunday learning gnuradio and about RF communication because me and some friends were thinking about competing in the DARPA spectrum challenge ( http://dtsn.darpa.mil/spectrumchallenge/Default.aspx ). I learned alot about one way radio communication and error checking and error correction. I did alot of low level network programming when I wrote IP Sorcery and learned so much about networks and shit when I worked for Motorola's iDEN group in the early 2000s. The internets has much different networking we use TCP/IP for most things but one would think that one way communication protocols would be much better due to lack of interference or data corruption?

Anyways, don't know if I will participate in the challenge. I have learned a whole bunch and it has given me some crazy ideas about using wireless induction in cells. Would be really cool to test if I end up doing my Post Doc with Bozhi Tian.

Made up a figure for my Language analysis paper and started writing it up a bit.

Finished my real paper that we are sending to PNAS and almost finished another one that we are going to send to JACS (just need to do some formatting stuff and grammatical stuff).

I think my biggest problem at the moment is finishing things I have an idea and then immediately start to work on it dropping my other projects. This means that projects tend to not be finished. I need to learn that if I want to start a new project I need to finish an old one first and maybe that will push me to finish more things.

And sleep. Yeah I think sleep will help also.

Been writing and coding to this alot:
