Hmm. I really kept up with that journal thing. That last note, two
months ago, was at the beginning of my REU thing, and now I'm at the end.
I am leaving to go to New York City (!) this Saturday.
Things went kinda well for my research, etc., but various circumstances
have dampened my enjoyment. I killed a keyboard, one of my
accomplishments with the most impact.
Ick. Don't you hate it when there's too much estrogen (& testosterone) in
your system? I know I do. (Andy Rooney whine mode off)
This summer I've managed to go to the East Caribbean, England, and my
grandma's house. All were good trips, though that last one was a little
short. I think I've convinced my uncle that we need to kick grandma out
for a week so we can clean out the attic & the 3 storage sheds. I found
my grandma's old college notebooks from 1972. Very interesting. I'm
going to type up a transcript, but I'm not showing it to anybody unless
she says it's okay...
So here's my idea/plan: I don't have much to do in New York, seeing how
I'm on a fellowship and am not required to work, so I'll take up the
example of Barbie and write down daily thoughts. Sorry, guys, I won't be
revealing deep, dark secrets. Just stuff you would have heard from my
mouth if I was still in Raleigh. That way I don't have to email everybody
the same story over and over and then I lose track of who knows what.
Feel free to return the favor by sending all gossip that comes your way.
Inquiring minds want to know!
