research summer

This summer marks my transition from class-taking student to research-conducting scholar. I didn't anticipate an easy transition, and so far, I've been correct. The advisor is cracking the whip, and despite my efforts, I'm not pulling the expected weight right now. Its frustrating -- the paper I'm digesting is a tough read. The answers aren't really jumping out.

Wednesday is another pseudo-deadline. I fell asleep reading the paper this afternoon -- I just couldn't slog it through. Tonight, I'll read another house or so, and tomorrow I start through again.

read wash rinse repeat.

Blogging hasn't been a very high priority lately.
I returned from vacation. Anne's mom bought oceanfront property in Nova Scotia. Ridiculously gorgeous.

The house is going. I put up the bed today. The neighbors are giving me looks because the lawn hasn't been mowed in a month, but I can't get the lawn mower from Home Depot because it won't fit in the ar, and I don't have insurance to rent a truck. HD will deliver said mower, but it costs an extra sixty bucks. Hopefully tomorrow, Sean will come with his truck.

Research. This is the big transition.
