Another evening storm

Oncoming storm

Well, I didn’t quite get to around to planning out my research projects for the few couple months, but I have now (finally) excavated myself from underneath an avalanche of emails and gotten confirmation (hooray!) of funding for both this summer and next year.

Sunrise clouds

Fervently hoping that this background headache I’ve had for most of today can be chalked up to caffeine withdrawal (I finished my coffee supply yesterday morning)

The sound and smell of a rainstorm is always immediately calming.

I am done (!) with this semester, so I’m going to consume a beer and make one (1) box of Mac and cheese.

After Tuesday I’ll be done with the semester, and will then take the rest of the week (Wednesday through Sunday) completely off of work.

I think I might just read a book each day.

Fun fact totally unrelated to anything that just happened: bread pudding is still pretty tasty even if one forgets to put in the sugar

Finished one of my finals and with it one of my classes!

Celebrating with ice cream and a book.

Looking forward to a week from now when I’ll be done with finals and can actually take a few days entirely off of work before hitting the ground running on thesis writing.

Some good food for thought here: What We Think About When We’re Swimming

The banana bread turned out rather well! Very tasty.

Time for the season finale of Westworld!

Shoutout to this episode of Columbo for guest starring Johnny Cash.

There is singing, and it is good.

I have done it! There are now words in a document that will eventually – with many additions and much editing – become one of my final papers.

My general end-of-semester fatigue and lack of motivation are crashing headlong into pandemic-related stress and anxiety, so finals are going to be a time.

And now it’s time for Clue!

Watching Dracula Untold.

This movie is gloriously ridiculous.

A Journal of the Plague Year

This is just one of those days where dealing with emails took most of my energy.

We made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to accompany Columbo!


…guess I’m sleeping in this morning

Watching the Leonard Nimoy episode of Columbo.
