(I'm blaming my month-long disappearance to my lack of internet access during my three movings, so there).
So we're already into the second week of grad school! I must say that I like it a lot so far - my new place is pretty sweet, classes seem relatively interesting, met a ton of people, and still manage to go out to the bars 4 days a week or so. The U is an overall great place and I really like the independence and flexibility of my schedule.
Today was also the very first time that I taught an organic chemistry lab all by myself! It was a bit hectic and confusing at the beginning, but things went alright and I actually enjoyed teaching quite a lot. Let's just hope that it keeps going like this and that none of my kids end up burned with acid or hurt from an explosion or something.
Got a couple of interesting things coming up in the horizon. We're certainly gonna throw a house-warming party sometime soon. Our place is quite spacious so it'd be tons of fun. Then Hashish might come for a quick visit in early October, and I might go to Florida on Thanksgivings to visit some relatives I haven't seen in like over 6 years. Let's see how things turn out.
Right now my only big concern is finding a good research advisor...and finishing up the howework for tomorrow. This semester is shaping up to be quite a good one!at September 13, 2005 11:40 PM
