Yay for Friday! This week went by fast. I have a few deadlines coming up: a grant proposal on the 15th, four presentations for a conference the following week, and then a deadline for another conference the following week. Plus grading for the end of the term coming up and two thesis defenses--I have both syllabi done for next term so that's a good thing. The presentations are 85% done, the grant proposal is probalby 75% done, and the conference submission is maybe half done--I'm hoping my co-authors pick up the slack.
Good things this week: one current PhD advisee and one former one got great new jobs, and a third former advisee is also in line for a great new job. I'm so happy for them!! I picked up another PhD student that I think I will enjoy. I got some reading for my class done. I feel almost on top of things. We had good news about our lot on the coast (in that we can build pretty much what we want to build). So yay!
