Last Saturday night, I had fully intended to go dancing. However, I got caught up in one of the aha! insight problems and wound up not going. I felt kind of funny about not going, because I enjoy dancing and haven't gone in a while, but I rationalized that at this point in time, it's probably more important to focus on things that will hopefully help me get (and keep) a good job. I'm thinking about going dancing on Thursday night ... we'll see.

In general, I like the problem solving books I've been looking at. However, when I get stuck on a problem, I get this disquieting feeling that something is wrong and that I'm not performing up to the level I should be. I know it's ridiculous to think that; even really brilliant people get stumped once in a while by simple problems.
