This past Saturday the weather was very nice and my wife, a friend, and I consumed a substance, listened to some music, drew some stuff, went and looked at some plants, thought some thoughts, and generally had a rather relaxing time. I drew some really neat looking geometric things; maybe I'll get a tattoo of one of them.
The weekend lifted me out of a depressed spiral that had been going since about September or so. I got off my ass and went back downstairs and started working on stuff I'd set down months ago. I also finally pulled the trigger on an OA setup which I need to solder a vacuum hose nipple onto a pipe so I can get another one of my cars running.
Last week I helped my advisor with a grant proposal that's related to some of my undergrad research. I hope it gets funded--it's too much work for me to pick up at this point, but it'll be fun to help some new PhD students working on it.
