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.
