I'm excited, of course, because it means we are closer and closer to spending another summer on the coast. Can't wait!
But in between will be the busy-ness of classes and research and getting all of our students graduated (I'm on at least 15 committees of students doing theses/projects/dissertations this year) (a bunch of the Master's students haven't decided yet on an adviser so I'm guessing I'll add a few more).
This week has been busy with talking with prospective PhD students--we'll make final decisions on that last week. I've also had a few students who needed a boost--nothing horribly wrong, just 'I don't know that I want to go to work right after I finish' (ok that's fine) and 'I got a really bad score on the LSAT' (ok um not sure what to say). That's the life of a professor.
But this scarf is coming along:
The 'newest' section, on the left, is curling in a lot----it really is more of a rectangle than it looks here. Trust me on that!
We're watching the new season of "Great Pottery Throwdown" which is the GBBS with ceramics. Really. And longer bakes.
I finished a book called "The Truants" which was---fine? A student gets way too involved with her professor. Chaos ensues.
I was asked to be a 'guest coach' for the Women's Basketball game on Sunday--it means I get to be in the locker room for the pre-game speech, and get a really good seat at the game. I'm excited!!
