12 hours later....

and I was still at the lab so we missed out on the science book readings. A bit frustrating because I had been looking forward to going to that for a couple weeks. On the up side we spent about 2.5 hours with our advisor going over Jason's upcoming High Engery Physics Seminar (doesn't he sound so important) and then going over my analysis which as always is still in disarray. He assured me that I'm doing a good job and to try and not get frustrated. Given that I had to start all over with this analysis at the beginning of November I'm not doing so bad. I did have to ask if I could pull out of an upcoming conference because of my vacation and D.C. trip I don't think the analysis will be ready to present in April. SO...he's going to talk to the head of my physics group and see if it's ok. Last year I had to pull out as well, but it was too late to do it officially and so I had to go to the head of the session and be all, "Hi, I'm not done so I won't be talking" which was embarresing. So I'd rather do it now officially and then if it's done great it'll be ready for the summer conferences and if not then I'm not embarresing myself for a round two.

So no running yesterday as we were home really late.

Probably another long day today.

I am one who needs a lot of coaching in order to present a good presentation. Personally I would be begging to not present to save myself from embarrassment. I am glad that your hard work is starting to pay for both of you.
