Super Lame

I have been paying a lot more attention to my other blog, which is focused on taking a picture every day for  year.  It is, I must say, insane.

While I was in Europe, the students in my class took a test.  There are 118 students in my class (no drops at all this semester!)  There were 7 seven students that didn't show up for the test.  A few of them e-mailed the morning of the test that they couldn't make it.  Swine Flu.  What are we to do.  A couple more missed the exam because they forgot.  WTF?  This is insanity!

It seems like work has reached some strange metaphysical equilibrium.  I seem to be much more calm at work and I don't seem to worry as much as I used to.  I don't really know why.  It is possible that I have completely given up on accomplishing anything.  I now am going to live vicariously through my students and post docs.  I have admitted it.  In fact, I took a 3/4th finished study and gave it to my post doc.  It is mostly written up, but I just don't have time to finish it.  She will hopefully finish it off and publish it. Serenity.

My blog went dormant for over a month. It was fine over the summer but not so much during the term. Some things just have to give.
