Some Goings On And Such

I had a too-brief trip to Texas last week to help prep for the symposium that was being run by my dissertation chair and Todd. I taught papermaking and gave a paper that was really well received--like, I got most of the questions after, and as my chair put it, everyone else got academic courtesy/pity questions. So, that was fun. I was really bummed to miss half the symposium, but I flew back to go to a wedding of friends, so, you know, still worth it. I was exhausted but it was lovely and fun. We had provided paper and art supplies on the tables so I can make them a memory book of the event as a present, so I have a box of pages waiting for me to bind them. I will likely go on a mission to get some boards and decorative papers this weekend.

My projects this week are to finish tweaking my prospectus to send to my chair, and then finish a book review I have due. On my docket after that is finish another book review, write two book chapters, do some article revisions, and put together an abstract for a conference. I also have two papers to write that have been accepted to conferences next year. And also, my, you know, dissertation.

And I really want to do NaNo this year but probably shouldn't because of all that stuff. Also, I'm still rather fried from my prelims. Which is apparently totally normal, but oy.

I keep meaning to leave you a 'congrats on passing your prelims!' note, but I can't comment on LJ posts form my home browser for some reason and I don't log in much from work. But I'm here today :D SO - Congrats on being ABD! I should also have something to send you here in a few weeks, at which point I will poke you for your address, form that pay it forward thing I did.... sometime earlier this year >.>

I need to sit down and do things for the pay it forward as well. I want to make some pretty homemade postcards. I was hoping to print them, but it still looks like we're not going to move my press anytime soon, grr and sigh.

So busy but it all sounds like fun - make sure you build in a tiny bit of downtime, bb! *hugs*
