...race against baby...
AAACCCKKK! This is me slapping my palm solidly against my forehead. Talk about TERRIBLE timing.
I just got an email today announcing a proposal call for Canadian climate research. It's the FIRST climate-related proposal call I've seen in TWO YEARS. And it's the LAST call for this program. The deadline is mid-February. If I don't put a proposal into this round, WHO KNOWS when my next chance for funding will be.
I have three great ideas that I'd love to propose, but I basically have to (a) network to find the right collaborators, (b) choose one of the ideas, (c) write the proposal, and (d) do all of the admin that goes with gov't proposals before baby. This could be MAJORLY tough. Why why why WHY NOW????
But of course, now my mind is racing with germs of ideas, and it's the most stimulated it has felt in WEEKS. Not sure what to do, but I think that I will be spending tomorrow writing some project outlines and looking at data and papers.
