With any luck, this will be my last year of classes. I have to finish my Master's thesis by the end of this semester and next semester's end is the qualification exam for doctoral candidacy. *Le sigh* I'd hoped to have the code for my project finished before summer's end, but alas...twas not to be. Anyway, between my thesis work, classes, and TA duties, I ain't gonna be posting much. I sadz. But I guess that's not much different from usual.
At least this time being a TA doesn't involve grading papers. Instead it involves overseeing student projects at the telescopes, one of which is an hour's drive each way. But the view is awesome: you can see the Milky Way with the unaided eye! So that'll be cool. Provided it doesn't happen around midterms. And because of Murphy's Law, that's exactly when it's going to happen and trying to study by the light of 1 dim red bulb, while I'm fretting about students breaking the telescope or hitting somebody (myself included) with the telescope's half-ton counterweight, is going to suck. But my professors this semester all seem pretty chill, so I got that going for me, which is nice.
Oh, but I also volunteered to help with the department website, so maybe I'll make post-able work for that out of necessity.
BTW, guess what? Deja-vu: A/C maintenance broke my unit again! Just like last year! At least this time they're coming to fix it tomorrow. At 6:30 AM. ASAP is nice, but not at the halfway point in my sleep cycle.
