What did you get paid for today? I spent the afternoon perfecting a list at amazon.com: “So You’d Like to… Conquer a Small Country from the Comfort of Your Desk.”
Today has been a good day, all around. My concerns about the availability of my third recommending professor (who is on sabbatical) were completely alleviated: he replied to my e-mail and said he’d send the letter out today. Today! Woo! This is excellent news. Maybe the department will get everything they need in time to give me an assistantship.
I’ve also figured out one of my car problems. I drive too much. In town. Today, I couldn’t decide where to go for lunch, and so I drove in squares for about 30 minutes. Not excellent on the old gas mileage. Also not good on the lunch time limit.
