eating down my stores

Zero dollar day. Getting my second jab day after tomorrow. Planning on staying holed up here till weekend after next, eating down my stores–dried, frozen, and canned goods. Covid’s on the rise here in bum-fuck, red-state New York.

Had an emotionally difficult day, but I kept it pretty well in check. And kept working.

Been thinking about getting a graduate degree in computational biology, and taking another run at academia from that angle. Seems crazy, but I miss doing research. I feel wasted as a teacher. Though I did have a great moment with a student today. It’s cool when they love me (as a teacher). They get so excited with their young, bright eyes. They’re so eager for affirmation.

Got an hour in on the math paper today. Gotta get back to working on the van as quick as I can.
