Research

Think I've figured out how to split off a reasonable-sized piece of my research that's interesting on its own! It'll be good to get something written up since things have been slow going lately.

The other grad student in my research group left on short notice, so now I'm helping to run his project (which has grant funding and project deadlines) until my advisor brings on some new students. It's actually a continuation of some undergraduate research I did mumble years ago, so I'm excited to get to do a bit more with it!

Personal

It's been a year this week since I publicly transitioned!

Cooking

Over the weekend I made shakshuka while waiting for my wife to finish mowing the lawn. I ended up simmering it for about 2 hours and the flavors of the spices really came out! I think next time I'm going to try making it with fennel greens and fresh dill.

Yesterday night we pitted about a half gallon of cherries we picked from the cherry tree in our yard. Looks like we'll be making cherry pie this weekend!
