It's been a while since I've been in this empty room. Much has happened since.
These days, I am not doing much empirical work anymore. I'm kind of burnt out - it seems at times that all this laboring is for naught. Instead, I'm working on my spirit. But I've been learning a lot lately. I was somewhere - perhaps on a train, or in an airport - where I heard the following message:
If you always do what you always did,
You'll always get what you always got.
I think there is more wisdom in that statement than any empirical study can provide.
Good luck, everyone. I will post on occasion again.
