Today even started out nice. I was up before the sun, and got to watch it rise over the Virginia Range as I ate breakfast. Desert sunrises are awesome--imagine a cloudless (but hazy) sky, where the whole eastern horizon glows with pinkish gold light over the mountains, the western sky still dark, and then the sun peaks up, dousing the east-facing sides of everything with that nice golden light.
All I have to tomorrow is go into work for a few hours, then go see my adviser and get my skills back up on the scanning electron microscope with him for a while (or the x-ray diffractometer if the SEM doesn't work); radiation is fun! (as long as it's not pointed at me!), then pack for going to visit my family for a few days *wags tail excitedly*.
Only mild amounts of HW over the break, as compared to the last two weeks...no less than 9 assignments (at 1 to 5 hrs each) and two 50-minute exams in the past 11 days, plus work and working out...I'm beat, but I'm DONE!!!
Current Mood: jubilant
