Happi Pi Day!

I'm off to a one-day tournament today! I'm excited to see my Night Train teammates again, and I'm excited to get outside and run around a bunch. And I'm excited that I get to wear my Pi jersey! (I used to play for a frisbee team called Pi.)

Last week was good and busy. I spent Wednesday through Friday being recruited by the Nutrition Department. Nothing is 100% settled yet, so I'm hesitant to say too much about it, but I'm pretty sure that I'll be starting as a Master's student next fall! I'm glad I got to attend recruitment - it clarified my thinking about what I want to get out of this program, and I got to meet some very nice faculty members and students. Plus they took us out to dinner at Bistro 33, which is one of my favorite places in Davis. (Not as romantic without Scott there, but still nice!)

Last week was made even busier because it was the last week of the quarter. Despite a full two days of homework last weekend, and being diligent about getting HW done during gaps in my schedule this week, I'm still feeling behind and a little stressed for finals.

Fortunately, they're spaced out well:
Monday - last day of class
Tuesday - studystudystudy
Wednesday - general chem final
Thursday (my birthday!) - bio final
Friday - organic chemistry final
Saturday (6-8pm) - genetics final

I'm glad I've only got one final per day, but I'm pretty impatient for 8pm next Saturday to roll around! On Sunday, we'll be heading south on a camping trip. One day at a time... it will be over before I know it, right? In any case, I'm celebrating Pi Day by thinking about coursework as little as possible and about flying discs as much as possible. 3.14159...!!!
