It hasn't been the most exciting past few days, because I've been working on editing papers for publication. One has just about finished the peer-review process, while the other has gone through one of what is likely two rounds of review.
As I've said before, peer review is a necessary part of science. In both of these papers, the reviewer has brought up points I wouldn't have otherwise considered. So, although editing, re-editing, and proof-reading manuscripts is almost (but not quite) as exciting as watching grass grow, it is necessary.
But to finish revisions of two papers is a first for me. Now for a well-deserved (at least in my opinion) break.
