it's a bit contradictory to title a post about how i'm totally bogged down in thesis this way, but the title refers to my regained ability to eat foods like a normal person. (!!!!) still no word on what's wrong with me, but i can drink coffee, which makes me happy for three reasons:
1. i was at a conference last week. all conferences necessitate caffeine. 2. i'm totally bogged down in thesis. 3. when i don't drink coffee, i miss it like one would miss a friend. i am aware that this is sad.
this is one of my favorite pictures from the conference. it was the ISBE conference on the cornell university campus in ithaca, new york. the weather was gorgeous.
