I’m procrastinating. I need to write two papers in the next two days. The topics are finance related. Finance related. I’d rather be getting teeth pulled. So, here I am.
I’ve been away.
I haven’t had much to say.
It’s coming back.
Until the next hack.
Imagined or otherwise.
I have been re-establishing my personal journal library this weekend. Luckily, I did a pretty good job keeping Mendeley updated through end 2015 and while I wasn’t great at updating in 2016 I probably only lost 75 articles that hadn’t been added when I wiped my main backup last week. The best-est thing is, I’ve got them links to most of those listed elsewhere, so all’s good.
Our Atlanta to Phoenix flight arrived late Friday evening, we waited a while in line waiting for a tele-rental agent, got a car, then drove 20 miles south of the airport to our hotel. We slept well then took our time in the morning because our first stop, the Pima Air Museum in Tucson, didn’t open until later in the morning.
Mean is an interesting word. What I mean is … You are so mean … Mean people are average.
The sun isn’t up yet and the photo isn’t sunrise but I am sure it is a bright and shiny morning somewhere and it’ll be one here soon today whether or not there are clouds because it already is.
It’s been a week and a half since my first post vacation blog entry. I thought I’d have written more by now but life got in the way. I left off at breakfast on the 1st of December. I headed back to the hotel to work on my last assignment for my third course in my MBA program. Earlier this afternoon I finished my second assignment for my fourth course two days late. While it was late and I’ll lose 20 points out of 100 before the professor starts grading, I did the best I’ve done on a homework assignment (in my not so humble opinion) than I’ve done since the first time I was in college decades ago. I may write about that later or post a version of the assignment somewhere. It doesn’t matter right now other than realizing that the good feeling I got from it helped me decide to write something here.
tMy wife and I spent the 12 days on the road during the past couple of weeks. We left our home in central Florida the 30th of November and returned on December 11th. Woodstock, Georgia, a small city north of Atlanta was our first stop.
I’m a lifelong learner. I’m approaching 40. I don’t mean age, I mean graduate courses. The number will soon equal the number I took as an undergraduate. That 40 took me less than four yours, of course.
In his “Sticks in the Smoke” project, painter Nick Andrew has been visiting and drawing a different public park or garden in central London each week in 2016. Here, he captures the energy of Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park.
