Quantum phase transition

So, for those of you who don't know: a little over a week ago I submitted my thesis, threw all of my stuff into boxes and bags, jumped on a plane, and found myself in Innsbruck, Austria. Transitioning from one time in your life to another is an interesting thing. Two weeks ago I was madly writing my thesis, it now seems an eternity ago, pressures about writing have been overcome by pressures of finding a new home, learning a new language, and making new friends. For the last month my life has been rapidly lurching from one state to another, I think today is the first time in what seems like forever that I've been able to take a deep breath and realize that my life has completely changed.
