I had a day full of meetings. A great way to start a new academic year.
On the bright side they were much more streamlined and productive this time as compared to times past.
I am slowly becoming aware (or being reminded) of how busy I am going to be this semester. That's on top of teaching classes.
Tomorrow there are more meetings...and a drive into the city (not for anything fun).
And did I mention it was hot. It's pretty awful. I am hoping it is summer's last hurrah. Although we might get grazed by Hurricane Earl on Friday/Saturday. Events like that used to excite me, at least a little. Now that I am a home owner - not so much. I tend to be much too aware of the swaying trees and falling branches. Unfortunately, a couple of our trees are what you would consider "weed trees" - meaning they grow randomly and really fast (not that you could get high off of them). This also means they are not very sturdy and tend to have branches - sometimes very large branches - break off.
I don't think Earl will come close enough to cause concern. There are plenty of other things to worry about.
