Why do all my posts start with “(insert month here) Already!”

Clearly I’m doing too much, because time is passing way too quickly.  We got a bunch of wedding stuff out of the way when I went home a couple of weeks ago – we have a date and a place and I have a dress!  June 20, 2010.  Plenty of time, right?  Unless it all passes as fast as it has been recently…But I do feel better about everything.

The new quarter started abruptly for me – TAing and rehearsals and a new way to go with my research all at once.  I’m feeling a little overextended.  I like TAing so far (there are 3 other TA’s and it’s an introductory planetary science class), but it’s taking a lot of time.  Hopefully it will only happen that way every other week, since we’re going to split the problem sets up.  I’m also taking 2 classes pass-fail, which means I’m trying very hard to just do the work without stressing about whether it’s completely right or not.  And my adviser is back from sabbatical.

I think it will get better soon, but I really hope I can survive the next month or so until the play is over..

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.
