Got my ass kicked…

I knew grad school was going to be much harder than I thought, but I didn’t think I’d get my ass kicked so hard in the first week.  I will be spending all day Saturday and Sunday grading paper, getting ready for my classes next week.

There were also some personal things going on, Pam had her birthday this week, we bought new furniture, Pam bought a laptop.  Each one of those things did not go as expected, our furniture had issues with it that needed to be fixed, Pam’s laptop had issues, and a fellow lab mate had a personal emergency, so I helped out with animal care for her.  It was just a lot thrown at me for one week.  I am going to get as far ahead as I can this weekend so I can take things as they come this week.  Hopefully I can establish a pattern or a rhythm and get comfortable.

Some of the grad students threw Pam a birthday party, which was awesome.  I am really surrounded by a great cohort of people and truly enjoy being around them.  That is all for now, gotta run some quick errands and then back to grading.
