It feels a bit strange to write a post on overthinking because then I can be accused of overthinking about overthinking.
This question stems from the observation that my conversations seldom end after talking. I always take pleasure in writing down the sparkles generated in the conversation and producing more thoughts afterwards. I realise that my dad loves it, too. He always writes to me essays after a deep discussion with me. It runs in the family then.
It is somewhat similar to machine learning model updates. For the most part, I am happy with continuous integration when new data comes in, but then sometimes I also need major updates and that is when I need to shut down the server, stop taking in new information, and indulge myself with thoughts and reflections. I have found it incredibly enjoyable.
Am I overthinking it? Well, I need to think about it a bit more and let you know.
