tired, and sick as well. since the last time i posted (rocky went well btw), de rham cohomology has been eating my life. all of it. i'm really done with this class. i've gotten no research done, and i'm like a month behind in complex analysis. (i'm thinking of just auditing it next semester cause there is no way at this point i can try to take it for a grade.)
i applied for the senior gta position that just opened up since it'd look good on a resume (ultimately, i *do* want to teach, right?), and because i was hoping it'd help me kinda grow a little as an instructor...today, the gta coordinator got back to me today to say that it went to someone else.
today i also e-mailed the guy who arranges preliminary exams to see if i could have some influence on how things got scheduled. essentially, i sent this:
I have a question about scheduling of the preliminary exams. Are they similar to the summer prelims in being the weekend before we head back to school? Also, when will the schedule be set?
I ask because I've recently been invited to a friend's wedding on the 16th of January. I would like to attend, but cannot RSVP until I know what my schedule looks like mid-January.
to which, i got back this:
This confirms that you will take the prelim on functional analysis on Jan 16, 2010 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm in 429 McB. If you have any questions, please let me know.
sigh. gee thanks. :(
i'm also stuck with a bunch of work to do for 1205 (grading and contributing to test writing) that i really just don't feel like working on right now.
is it can be end of semester tiem nao? D: i'm so fucking sick of school.
