(February 22, 2016 — February 28, 2016)
- Upcoming: Nope.
- Teaching: Barely keeping up, but I’ll catch up over Spring Break, I guess?
- Graduating that Ph.D. student: Still plugging on that dissertation, though.
- Administrative Reporting: Going to have to finally do that report next week, so yay?
- Research Funding: Nope.
- Met with a couple of visiting companies.
- Enough about that… Entering a period of the year that is historically difficult for me.
Reading and Watching
- Continued on Infinite Jest, including catching up to schedule. Enjoyed one particular passage so much that I almost wrote a blog post, but then the Infinite Winter project did it for me.
- Realized that we had finished season 1 of Madame Secretary. Don’t seem to have free access to Season 2 at the moment. So, we’ve put it aside for now.
- So, we started season 2 of Mozart in the Jungle. We watched season 1 a while back. Entertaining.
Family and Friends
- Took M and N to Travis Whaley’s Graduate School Recital on Saturday. I enjoyed it very much. I think M liked it, too. N complained a lot, but behaved very well, so I’m not complaining. We’re going to miss Travis when he leaves Blacksburg this summer. (C was sick on Saturday.)
- Took C, who was feeling better, to swim with the Cub Scouts on Sunday afternoon.
- No progress.
Health and Fitness
- Ran three times, on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday. Still working on pace, mostly.
- Weight: 192.0.
