Good move on the title :)
quantum chemistry...Very much out of my current realm.
I had thought I'd like to be a doctor but never applied myself. Now I know I cannot be a doctor, maybe not even a nurse at this point. I have chemo brain. Perhaps you will discover the cure! Perhaps some tough reading might be the cure, but I like blogging instead.
The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was recommended to me earlier this year. I checked it out from the library. It was over 600 pages and there are 3 volumes so I didn't even start. That was the first book I was going to download. Just like blogging, when I start reading I cannot stop and nothing gets done. I have put your philosophy post at the top of my reading list.
