A day in the life…

Whoa, I guess I won’t be reading any blogs (or emails for that matter) today.

Here is my schedule:

8:30am – Breakfast with job candidate
10am-noon – 4 one-on-one meetings with students one after the other
noon-1pm – Attending job candidate’s talk
1:30-7pm – 11 one-on-one meetings with students (straight through, obviously)
7pm-? – Dinner with colleagues and job candidate

So yeah, this many meetings is not usual, but I thought the students from my undergraduate writing seminar would benefit from some one-on-one discussions of their research statements.

Just another 12+ hour day. Wish me luck.

    I had a very similar day yesterday! Good luck. At the end of it all, I felt like I had gotten through a whole week, and then I realized it was only the end of Monday. Take care of yourself. This is a good way to get the flu.

    wow, good luck! at least, when you are totally wiped out at the end of the day, you can console yourself with the knowledge that you did a good thing meeting with all those students.
