What have you been up to lately Tony? Good question…

how I feel

how I feel

I’m probably the only person who notices, but I’ve been pretty absent on this blog for a while.

Maybe, just maybe, I have some followers who have actually noticed that my last post was back in early November, and for months before that my posts were quite infrequent. Let me explain… and also give you something to look forward to!

I’m busy. I know, everyone is busy… and in my opinion, it’s nothing to be proud of. I don’t enjoy being this busy and I’m dropping the ball on a lot of things: friends, family, my training (and therefore health, which I am usually quite fond of).

But I’ve bitten off more than I can chew, it seems, and the only thing to do now is keep chewing, while being careful not to take on any more! For now, it seems a necessary rough patch… I’m somewhat transitioning from a clinical career and into research, which I very much enjoy.

Currently, I am still working as a Physical Therapist, while finishing my Masters thesis part-time.

Beginning my research “career” (if you can call it that), and am involved in three more studies on top of my thesis.

I’m also involved with a major e-project — co-authoring (sorta) an e-book… not gonna say any more than that for now, but stay tuned!

And finally, of course, I am still dancing as regularly as possible, because it keeps my soul alive (and my bodyfat down)!

If all goes to plan, things should settle down dramatically in the next few months, then I will start working on this blog a bit more. I’ve been thinking very hard about a possible re-branding of this website — again, I’ll talk more about that when the time comes.

Sorry for such a boring, somewhat self-serving blog post.

Trust me, I’m not bragging about how busy I am: this sucks! But there is light at the end of the tunnel. This should turn out to be a very interesting year — I just hope I can make it interesting for you as well. Thank you so, so much for continuing to read, share my articles, comment, critique, debate, and discuss. I am continuously amazed at how supportive people are, and am extremely grateful for the talented and ever interesting social and professional networks I’ve built through this blog.


Share the love!

      Congratulations on the crossover. I am also someone who is in the sciences who enjoys some breaking. Your blog is great and keeps me on the ball when I get lackadaisical on training.

      This is my first time commenting, but I’ve been looking at your blog for the past year now. Keep up the good work and keep bringing science to breaking.

      I’m listening, Seattle. It is really good to hear your point of view on the Medbridge site. It is s fine example of clinical reasoning. Yes, there just might be something going on in the back when people have back pain. As much as I like the information coming to us about neuroscience people seem to forget that all that messenging is to protect the body from potential threat. So if the body is out of kilter, there would be a higher demand on soft tissue repair processes and some nociception to go with the chemical irritants. I will be watching your blog for your future insights as you venture into neuroscience. Taking on too much at once is not a good pacing practice so take care of your own needs first.
