This month’s Scientiae topic is “moving forward”: how our lives, work, and science are moving forward.
In my case, this topic is most easily addressed in list form:
- Designing some new classes and new lessons for old classes for next year
- Writing a grant proposal to fund a brand new project
- Working with a new student
- Trying out new activities to get out of the house in the evenings, be more active, and meet some new people, including dance classes and tennis lessons
Well, that’s a lot, right there. It’s been a huge year in terms of transitions — finishing school and starting up at my faculty job — so it’s hard to narrow down this topic. There’s really very little that I’m holding over from a year ago. Research topics, I suppose, are still related to my grad school specialty. …Yeah, that’s about it.
