Guys. You guys. Study section is Hard. Really hard. On the first day, we spent over 9 hours reviewing grants. There was 35 min for lunch, two short coffee breaks. My brain hurts. Also, I think I pulled a hamstring. I have no idea how that happened.
I am learning SO MUCH. We have had some contentious debates about applications, and some where everyone agrees. But it is certainly intense. Also, the grant I just submitted is toast. I can already see how it will get skewered I guess that is part of the reason I'm doing this, though.
But seriously. Whoa.
