It withers and withers

Confound this damned inspiration block! Hours I toil over the pages already laden with notes and yet I still find myself at a loss for any sort of inspiration to get myself back to work. A droll and stagnant life I've found myself in, whatever they expected me to find in this suburban Midwestern wasteland I will never know. I've found various ways to entertain my time: interacting with the natives, familiarizing myself with the varying custom of family life from that of the northern territory, the weather, the region, the lackluster sports teams. Anything, anything at all to keep my mind working lest I become lost in this maze of this concrete jungle. The weather has begun to take a foul turn and I am yet only a quarter of the way through my final year of being stationed in this dreadful place. Oh, only a quarter.. why can it not be my date of RTC?

Though I generally give a wide-berth to self-experimentation.. I must say a rather curious thought occurred to me today... Perhaps same day I could utilize this, whether it be on myself or a colleague is yet uncertain but nonetheless it is a muse to entertain. I was able to locate a local to sketch out my idea, damn my lack of artistic skills.


Oh what to do, what to do... This experimentation means nothing if I must make these discoveries without my scholar...
