“Brain fine” is more accurate, but drama.
Everything’s cool. That’s the headline. I am, however, anxious (because anxiety is my jam) that I won’t be able to keep up. I’m fortunate to be working/studying with some brilliant people, and while I’d love to think I’m a pretty groovy chill Zen guy when it comes to this stuff, there’s a desire to at least be middle of the pack in these things.
Keeping up should be fine. I’m watching less junk, and reading more scholarship type things and that’s good. My main concerns are more around synthesis and absorption than the straight act of doing the readings.
