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.

I've always loved art. I spent my middle school & high school career in magnet schools for the arts. In high school I majored in printmaking & art history.
But I've also always loved science, & late in high school I realized that science is more lucrative & maintains its novelty longer. In particular, I find studying physics of space (i.e. astrophysics) an immensely spiritual experience, to the extent that one can be spiritual as a secular humanist. So that's what I'm pursuing my PhD in. Yep, I'm learning how to take the universe apart & bend it to my will. :evillaugh:
Art is still an integral part of my life. It's just not for a grade anymore :meow:.

:star:Note: if you want to color my line art, please PM me for permission (I have never refused—ask and ye shall receive the full-size line drawing), and when you're ready to post, be sure to include both my name and a link to my original line drawing in the description. If I have given you the lines to color, I will check in after a certain amount of time to ensure, if the work has been colored and posted, that my policy has been followed.

it looks like you are an astronomer after all, i'm sorry usually when i see somebody say they have a PHd its hard to believe because its people on the internet. usually i think they are posers, but youre obviously a real astronomer. before you shut me away like so many others you must have an open mind to other's theories. you may never know what you might discover from talking with other people about the universe. all people look to the sky and wonder what's out there. they wonder if there are other races, they have yet to find out this answer. :) (Smile) :( (Sad)
