I can't sleep worth a flip, so I'm up making a flight reservation for a conference in Nashville at the end of March. I'll be flying into Nashville on March 29th and flying back to Dallas on April 1st. I hadn't planned to stay that long, but with the way the presentation schedule worked out, it was the only option. Thesis Director will be leaving on the 30th, so I'll have some time on my own in ole Nashville. We'll see what I can get into.
I'll be staying at the Nashville Doubletree, so if anyone out there is familiar with the downtown area, give me some tips for things to do.
On the Ph.D. front, the latest developments indicate that I'm 1st or 2nd in line for an assistantship, so I'll probably have one offered to me before the end of April. Still waiting to hear from the U. of Florida and Middle Tennessee State.
I had a whole introspective, thoughtful post planned, but now I find myself lacking the energy to write it. Instead I think I'll lie down for a while longer and if I don't have any luck sleeping I'll read. Two books have me hooked. I expect to finish them both tomorrow after I write a mid-term.
I have a little extra time on my hands this week because the junior college where I teach is on Spring Break, and next week the university has Spring Break. I plan to nap in a multitude of positions for two weeks straight.
And I should get back to my thesis. I haven't touched the damn thing in 3 weeks (or more). I'm three-quarters done, just gotta drive it home.
