Got two ‘accepts’ today to publish the submitted publications, just as I was preparing a new article. One more proof that life progresses in cycles. Thus, we synchronize with them or bang our heads against the wall. Which reminds me of the time I actually banged it against the wall, but I will write about it on another occasion.

Let’s get back to the feeling of euphoria when I have read two mails stating that my publications are accepted for publication. The feeling lasted for a short while, as it got substituted with panic and stress. Panic because of the close deadline in which the edits need to be finalized, and stress because of the piled-up work which I have not prepared for. ‘Go, blindly follow your plans,’ I said to myself. This is a life’s slap in the face, which reminds us that it is actually in charge.

Now, that would all be wonderful if I was not sitting for eight hours on a boring job which does not fulfill me, except for my stomach and my bank account. ‘Damn!!!’

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
