It's almost 9pm and I am sitting in the common room in the department. Up until this semester I never spent much time in the department at night. I'm not sure why not -- I worked at night in previous years too, but I just always did it at home or at 1369. The department is peaceful at night though, and there is a sense of comaraderie between the few people who are around. Tonight I am here waiting for Matt. We are going to the gym to work on my pull-up after his office hours, which end in a few minutes. It's nearly impossible to work in the common room during the day because there are so many distractions, but at night it is a nice place to work. You can get stuff done but at the same time there are a few people milling around to keep you company. Tonight the common room has the further benefit that there is a ton of food in here left over from the colloqium. Speaking of, I may have a little snack before we head over to the gym...
