Please don’t shake my head

This weekend I was telling someone about all the assignments we have taken on over the past weeks in SciCom — double earth quakes, oil eating bacteria, etc. He said, “Wow, you should be really smart by the time you write 10 months worth of articles on subjects like that.”

I should be. Unfortunately, once I write the article and turn it in, I forget almost everything I wrote!

My brain is an etch-a-sketch.
