Well, I just got home from work. (To be fair, I stopped for food on the way, but still...) Normally, things get quiet around 6:30, and if I’m still there I’m getting stuff done. At the beginning of the semester, if I’m still there at 6:30, which I am because I’m hoping to finish pounding backups into submission, that’s when a dozen students with account problems show up, because their class just let out. Or when the TA who’s about to teach stops by because his cardkey doesn’t work in the lab door. Or whatever — you get the point.
Anyway, it actually feels good to be busy in a getting-things-done way, and I’m actually feeling particularly good about work qua work these days, but getting home so late the last few days has cut into my Arisia packing and planning quite a bit. Oh, well, I’ll get there and I’ll have a great time.
