My 1-year anniversary in Pasadena

Yup, one year ago today I arrived here with my parents and a lot of luggage.  It still doesn’t really feel like that long, and I think I miss the east coast more than I realize.

In other news, my orals date is up in the air again, and I’m feeling kind of run-over by one of my advisors.  He’s going on sabbatical right after my exam, so he’s trying to push it earlier…more than is comfortable for me.  Once again I’m questioning the wisdom of signing on to work for him permanently.  Sigh.

About meg

I think planets are cool! I'm a new graduate student in Planetary Science at Caltech, and at the moment I'm interested in planetary geophysics of terrestrial planets and moons. I'm originally from Cortlandt Manor, NY, and I did my undergrad at MIT, where I got heavily involved in student theater - a hobby I hope to continue through grad school, time permitting... I also like to read sci-fi/fantasy novels, obsess about English history, and play frisbee.
