Out of bed at 6:15. Out the door at 7:00. On the train at 7:13. Grab a latte. On to another train at 7:35. Onto the bus at 8:10. At work at 8:50. Read Dain Curse while on bus/train.
Talk with the programmer about why my data looks weird. Learn that he’s right and that I’m wrong, and the data just isn’t what I’d hoped it would be. Run a few more analyses and learn it may not be as bad as I thought.
Talk to mentor about how the data is better this way than the other way. Run more analyses. Study for test while data is grinding. (Fall asleep for 20 minutes. – Shh! Don’t tell anyone!)
Back on bus at 3:45. Grab another latte (need it!). Onto train at 4:30. Off train at 5:05. At school at 5:20. Read more of Dain Curse during trip.
Buy a sandwich and eat dinner.
Set the computer going to redo the analysis I fucked up after lunch. Leave it running while I go write the test.
6:00, write test. 6:50, hand in test. Didn’t check it, don’t care, just need to pass, don’t care what my grade is.
7:00 – data is still running so decide to kill time and blog. Note that ‘blog’ is not included in spell-check dictionary, but ‘fucked’ is. Go figure. Wife should be here around 7:45 to drive me home. Very happy about this; usually class doesn’t finish until 8:30.
Plan to go home, run more analyses, finish presentation that I have to give tomorrow at 9:30 to present data that is still being analysed. Also have to finish poster I have to give to copy shop to print tomorrow for presentation on Thursday. Hope that I get to bed before 11:00 or I’m going to be unhappy tomorrow.
Welcome to my life.
