I do things. Sometimes they are art. Sometimes they are linguistics. Sometimes they are neither.

I don't usually follow back. That doesn't mean I don't love you or keep track of your awesomeness!

was on campus 9-4:30, 6:30-10. those two hours off were a beer-lunch with my (sweet adorable wonderful overwhelmingly stressed) cohort. yes, you read that right. we drank beer for lunch at 4:30pm because grad school is a trope and everything is so much harder than it needs to be.

i’m gonna be scarce for the next … weeks

boston, edinburgh, inverness, chicago, new jersey

and by the end of this it’ll be october


i guess i’ll see you in a month (i’ll be aroundish, but traveling)

emails from advisorman at 1am about edits i need to make for our skype meeting tomorrow

clearly he doesn’t care if i don’t do them

since i am literally teaching all day tomorrow and do not get a break until my commute back home which is immediately before our meeting

clearly it is perfectly okay that i told him that i wasn’t even going to get a chance to look at them because i am IN BED AND TRYING TO FALL ASLEEP (but i still checked my email)

ugh whatever i’m doing fine

oh but despite how exhausted i am and how much revision is required on my talk, i got this in an email this morning regarding that poster i finished last night

i have never ever ever gotten a straight-up compliment from advisorman before. sure, there are a few things i need to fix or change, but what?!

i finally have done a thing not badly (and for the moment it feels good)
