The heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the gare in the cool of the day…
Ian went off this morning to a job interview with Raytheon. I fed him hash browns and scrambled eggs before he left. A black town car with tinted windows came to pick him up at 6:35, and I can only hope it will also return him this afternoon.
Yesterday I finished my MQP. That is, I will do no more editing. I cannot actually finish it until Monday, when I can obtain my advisor’s signature. The Print Shop here on campus will print and bind three copies for me; the whole kit and kaboodle will cost me about $75. Thankfully my actual MQP submission will be a PDF copy uploaded to the WPI site via their new digital projects page. Ironically the digital submission generates more paperwork, but not having to print a fourth copy of the project itself – which now spans 145 pages – is well worth the extra work. Now I can focus on the other things:
A job interview Teaching a Wednesday Workshop
- 10/10 – Social Psychology project write-up (~5 hours)
- 10/10 – Social Psychology final exam covering 6 chapters (?10 hours)
- 10/11 – Plant Diversity final exam covering everything from algae to angiosperms (?15 hours)
- 10/11 and 10/13 – Social Psychology project presentation (maybe 2 hours)
10/11 – Social Implications final paper due
- 10/13 – Memorizing a speech for the Board of Advisors meeting (?8 hours)
College is all about time management. Or mismanagement. Also, I think the phrase we get by embodies the college experience to some extent.
The trees have just now started changing color. Most of them are still green, and yesterday the temperature got up to around 80°, which felt a little odd for early October. Ian and I have appreciated the nice weather, however, given our daily half-mile jaunts campus. The mile to Price Chopper, however, seems too long to trek. My car-endowed friends are mostly too busy to take us grocery shopping, so we’ve been making trips to PC and buying one or two meals at a time – that’s the most we want to carry on our backs, you understand. We’ve not been eating very well, as you might imagine, but we get by.
