And read! It started out really slowly. I was on a downbeat despite looking forward to vegetating after an exhausting tour, which I have yet to blog about. And after one week of being back, a week to recover from exhaustion, I find myself having no more time..arrgh
DVD driver working perfect now, which is great. Time to go through all the stuff from Siggraph, and also some.
I told a class today that my project is on semiotics and signs, and the unlocatability of consciousness studied through epistemology...and I said physics and mathematics (Wissenschaft) are my game...yet I have not read anything beyond Karen Barad's "Meeting the Universe Halfway" in the last few days. And I still have to write that damn conference paper (topic excites me but the idea of trying to find enough time to do it isnt...why am I always so overly ambitious with my topics?)
TA slots switch...schedule still a mess...it is almost midnight and what the heck am I doing awake??
Time runs and runs away from me.
Did I say i just read a para of Simondon's L'invention dans les techniques? Kinda in the style of Merleau-Ponty's "Natur"
ok, bedtime before another long day tomorrow (and early morning German 1)....I am both afraid and excited about this semester...and I still have a paper to write for a conference. Should I post the abstract here and get some feedback? But then, I don't know who's going to be doing the feedback on the blog.
p.s. I got a bunch of books on the LHC and the history of string theory development...and guess what I did over the weekend instead of pouring over them. I went camping.
And this week, I will have the unpleasant task of dropping a class which does interest me but does not fulfill my focus for this semester...(why can't we have it all?)
