Grad student life style

I've packed my partner and Epsilon off to my in laws yesterday, and I find that I've already slipped back into my gradstudent lifestyle.

I stayed at work until my brain was full last night. Came home to a dinner of ramen and vegetables over a paper on a new subject I am trying to learn. When I got stuck, I got ready for bed, thinking about the problem. To keep my mind for fretting while trying to sleep, I went to bed with a novel, and read into the early am.

This morning, I turned the alarm to radio, and drifted in and out for a while listening to the morning's news. When I finally stumbled out of bed, I settled down to a cup of coffee and last night's paper. More coffee, and I packed lunch and reviewed my lecture notes for my morning class before heading out the door. I used to keep interesting papers on my bedside table, in case there was a morning I didn't feel like getting out of bed. I'm considering this luxury for the weekend.

Tonight, I even have an evening engagement!

None of these things could I do if they were around. I hadn't realized how much I'd missed this lifestyle. This is almost enough for me to look forward to being apart from them again in September!

  1. mmmhh, that sounds so good... perfect combination of comfy lifestyle and being productive. I'd even throw in a big bowl of chocolate ice cream... (=
