Long story short, I haz finals looming ahead. April isn't as bad as December (we actually get to see sunlight, which is kind of cool), but I must also wrap up my current project and write everything up, and as you may know, wrapping up one's research can be an epic pain in the ass. Why does it seem easier to write up other people's research rather than your own?
Also, there's like term papers and presentations and stuff. And taxes. And other gov't paperwork. And holy crap I don't wanna think about how I'm gonna survive this month. Thus, blogging will probably be reduced, and happen [even more] in sporadic bursts (procrastination is sort of quantised...). Kind of stressed at the moment, and the more stuff I have to do, the less I can focus on any given item in the list. Really annoying, to be honest.
That said, Sunday Protist and the continuation to the Neutral Evolution posts are on their way, and apologies for the delay. Actually, I think I'll wait until Wed to finish the next installment on Constructive Neutral Evolution, as Ford Doolittle is giving a talk on that at a dept seminar (sooo excited!) Would make sense to blog about that after his talk.
But yeah, apologies in advance for sub-par blogging until May. And why do I have to absorb the Canadian obsession with incessant apologising despite not actually being Canadian? Grrr...sorry about that! =P
