a lovely vacation

Went off the rails a bit over the break. No drinking, but not a lot of work. It was a lovely 3 week vacation that should have been 2 weeks instead. Spent some good time in NYC and did lots of hiking in the Catskills.

Going to try to make this coming term more productive. Going to try to get in 2 hours of van work every day after work but before exercising.

The three themes are: work schedule, sobriety, and budget.

Smoked a bunch of weed over the break, and it went sideways on me at the end. rededicating myself to taking a break.

Doesn’t look like I’m getting that tenure track job. Which is kind of a relief. But now I’m worried about what I’ll do if I don’t get the lecturer position. We’ll see.
