I'm planning to get some publications in my name. That'll be after I've submitted my apps in R2. Not very useful from an application point-of-view. But might help me brush up my ego. What are you guys/gals planning to do after you've submitted your apps? And indeed, for those who are already in the waiting game, what are your strategies for surviving this nightmare?

I'm doing some R2 applications and taking my time with them. Also have plans to go heli-skiing as well! Wahoo!

Looking at a bunch of potential internal roles and projects and some external ones as well. Trying to hold off on committing to anything too big while I wait...
