It's been an unexpectedly busy week at my office. But nonetheless, it's recognizably the first full week of summer. I've managed to start my schedule of taking two half-days off campus to work uninterrupted on course prep and research. And despite our department being audited, a late student thesis presentation, and two rather major staff meetings, I made progress on all my tasks. What's disappointing right now is that I still haven't put last semester behind me yet; work from both my classes remains to be brought to completion, and a deadline I set for myself at the end of the week on another old project I'm ready to put to bed will only be halfway met. All I can do is soldier on and hope that when the calendar turns to June, I'll be completely facing forward.
