For the past year, I have been living off of some very occasional part-time work for MetaMed, some odd jobs, and savings from various sources. It hasn’t been the most lucrative thing in the world, but it’s left me lots of time for thinking and writing.
Tomorrow I start Real Work. It’s just training for the first couple of weeks and I may have a bit of time, but after that I have been told it is not the sort of thing that leaves much time for thinking and writing (or eating, or sleeping). I am not going to keep up blogging once per day. Maybe I will be able to blog once a week? A couple of times a month?
Because I will be working on medicine and psychiatry full time, I expect this to turn into more of a Medicine And Psychiatry Blog than it is right now. I might change the About page and the tagline and some other stuff in order to reflect that.
Since I won’t have time to write complicated logorrheic essays anymore, I’ve gotten a Twitter account for my less verbose thoughts. If the past few days are any indication, it will be made entirely of corny puns and have no redeeming intellectual value. And another warning: if you follow me I probably won’t follow you back for a while – yesterday Twitter accused me of following too many new people and said it would delete my account unless I stopped.
Finally, I need to make a transaction in bitcoins soon but don’t want to expend the time/effort to become a part of the bitcoin economy right now. If anyone has bitcoins and wants to buy me something in exchange for the equivalent amount of fiat currency over PayPal, give me your email in the comments and we’ll make a deal (I’m happy to pay you slightly extra for your time).
