It can't really be Monday already, can it?

This last week has been crazy. Almost all of my time was focused around trying to prevent our field program from being shut down, the "highlight" of which was giving a very stressful presentation to people who had the power to shut down our field program right then and there. Surprisingly (at least based on what we thought a few weeks ago), our program was granted a stay of execution; we now have more time to justify its existence.

Then, instead of having a relaxing weekend, I led field trips both days. While running labs in the field is extremely fun (the students love seeing "real" biology, and really get into the work), they take a tremendous amount of time, and left me with functionally no weekend.

Thank goodness this is going to be a short week.
