The Monologues: Ten Thousand Tabs

Ten thousand tabs open

Synapses overloaded

Research papers, research papers, research papers

A driving beat in the background

*boom, boom*

Vesicles docking

How do I run this code in R again?

Error

Assignment

Email

Rewrite, rewrite

Ugh – I forgot to attach the file again

Assignment

What time’s that seminar?

Oh look – boots on sale

Thankful for a distraction

Instagram:

everyone’s on holiday so why am I here?

Down the rabbit hole we go


Back to work

Papers, papers, papers

One more week until the abstract deadline

Am I going to make it?

Exasperated

They still haven’t answered my emails

Google search:

mental health services on campus

No one can know

So I put on a smile

*boom boom*

No more serotonin

It’s getting dark outside

Everyone’s gone home

Oh wait – it’s Saturday – how long have I been here?

Google search:

no cook recipes

Ramen it is

Again

“Hey – can you run this analysis?”

One more tab

And this browser will

Crash
