December Conference

While I'm not presenting this year at the big December conference on the west coast my work does have some passes that the employees can share. I hope to be there all day on wed. and could take public transportation to the conference location Monday or Tuesday for dinner.

Let me know if you'd like to meet up!

I wish I had time for a longer post but to summarize I'm going to say

  • I think I might look back on the year it took me to write my dissertation (from husband's post doc city) as one of the best years of my life

  • On my drive home today I was realizing that all the times my husband ignored me and passed up fun trips while working on his dissertation were in vain. He now isn't going to study what was so important to him for 7 years and all he has is a very sad memory of our time in dissertation state, and I have some sad stories about how he never wanted to have fun.
Comme si, comme sa
We just have to live in the now.
