It’s a New Year

A new busy year.  I’m taking 1.5 classes this quarter (one’s a seminar-style class), and I’ve also gotten myself into a bunch of extra-curricular stuff.  I’m auditing an intermediate French class now, which is actually helping me improve already I think.  I’m also going to stage manage the spring TACIT show (the Life of Galileo, by Brecht), and I’ve learned enough CSS to redo the TACIT website and make it (I think) better.  Soon it will be live.  Aside from all that campus-oriented stuff, there’s been lots of fuss over wedding preparations and decisions, and seeing of places while I was home and being pricetag-shocked by one of them.  I have a bunch more to call still.  So it’s been a pretty busy couple of weeks, and I don’t expect that to change much for a while.  My research is going all right.  I feel like I’m making progress in understanding the program I’m using, but I’m still stuck on an error it’s introducing after a while.  I haven’t talked much with my adviser lately, since he’s still on sabbatical, so I’m a little bit at a loss for what to do, although I still have a few more ideas left to try.  Wish me luck!

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.
