Yes, I admit it I have a problem (and I love it). I want to be high all the time.
No, not that kind of high.
Every time my paper gets accepted, I get an award, I get a grant, I solve a problem, I submit a paper; I get a high. It is awesome and I love it. But the high doesn't stay longer.
I get searching for my next fix. I need it bad and need it now. I get restless.
Admittedly, it is one of those weeks where I am in withdrawal. Although I got a high from a recent federal (big ass) grant; I am looking for my next fix. I dont know if I will get it soon. Students are still in the training mode and only one paper is submitted for now. There are other things going on but they are slow.
May be there is a place called Academics Anonymous (AA). If you happen to know such a facility do let me know. I think I need help !
