Just a quick one today, folks. I'm actually aiming to get a few hours of sleep tonight (by a few I mean, literally, 3 or 4).
My lab partner didn't show up until an hour into the lab today. It would have been fine if she just didn't show up at all, because I was working with Sean and Chris quite happily on their cat up until she walked in. When she flounced in, fashionably unseasonal jeans jacket on her arm, I was forced to dig out our cat and start over from scratch. An hour into the lab. Because we couldn't have her missing out on any info, now could we? I was steaming mad, which really is not a good frame of mind to be in when you're trying to delicately scrape away fascia with a very sharp scalpel. It was quite unavoidable at that point, though.
I find that it's making me grit my teeth just to think about it.
I've been on a bit of a bio overload lately. Monday was lecture in the afternoon for an hour, then a study session at night for two. Tuesday was lab for three hours, and lots of studying. Tomorrow (today) is the test. Meep. I wish I could spend the morning studying for it, since there are still a few areas I'm rather shaky on, but I have digital in the morning, and you can't skip those classes or the teachers send swarms of Ann Arbor red squirrels, hyped up on Terra chips fed to them by students around campus, to surge through your door and strip the flesh from your brittle art student bones. Nothing will be left behind except for a small pile of bony ash and the crumpled pages of the biology book you were attempting to read at the time, trampled in the haste of a hundred little skittering feet. No kidding, I have been threatened with this before.
Light pollution preliminary presentations are slated for Thursday, so I'll be sure to let you all know how that goes. Some people appear to have sculptures with sound elements and embedded video screens all set to go, but on the other hand some people seem to have a grand total of 5 photographs to show. I've got a slideshow of about 90, 95 photos, and if I'm lucky that will be sufficient. If not-- State Street next!
I suppose that's about all, as I really ought to go to sleep. Sleep has been elusive these past few days. I'm not entirely sure why, as I haven't even had coffee in a while, so my caffeine intake should have gone way down (the Dr. Pepper intake has gone up, but surely that has less caffeine?). In any event, one last smidgen of a thought.
Anyone else get chills seeing this?
