I'm almost done with the first week of classes and I can't believe how busy things have gotten. Today I dealt with 115 emails and taught two classes. I'm tired and a little fried, but nevertheless it's been a fun first week. After the long break it's great to be back working with students and teaching.
Around a week ago there were two feet of snow on the ground, and now it's almost gone. It's been an unusually warm week. Hopefully we'll get a little more rain followed by some cold weather. This might make the rink downtown skatable. Playing hockey would be an ideal form of stress relief.
