Well, here I am on summer vacation. How’s it been so far? I was up until 2 last night grading final papers, and I’ve got a paper to write in the next couple days. I’ve spent the last three days dealing with issues with the apartment I left behind, making sure from a distance that everything’s ready for my subletters (it isn’t, mostly my fault since I didn’t have time to tie up loose ends before leaving).
Of course it was great seeing Julie, while it lasted (she’s in Iowa until Saturday), and I like being in our new place. I want to relax and enjoy it. But being a grad student means never getting to say you’re done.
