Epic Wins and a Fail
I defended my PhD thesis one week ago! (Successfully!) Although I am not finished until I complete my thesis revisions, being past the most stressful 2 hours is excellent and I enjoyed getting to see some talks from visitors on the same day.
Other epic wins:
- I got to visit Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Mellon University 2 weeks ago to visit my old friend Andrew and give a talk at the CS Theory Lunch (free burrito included)
- The UW Grad Student Association website no longer needs to be manually updated every time we leap ahead/fall back for Daylight Savings Time thanks to WordPress being awesome and a few minutes of additional php hacking on my part
- Saw a holiday brass concert and some roof-based fiddling in Toronto last week, the first play I have seen in quite a long time. According to Wikipedia, the original Fiddler ran more than 3000 times! I get bored of doing something three times…
Epic fail: I lost one glove over the weekend! Have you seen it?
