I got a lot of writing done on my thesis this week and I had a good meeting with Lars (my advisor) yesterday, so now I am feeling much calmer about things than I was a couple weeks ago. Today I took the day off from work, and just had the most restful day possible. I slept as late as the cat would allow me to, then I made huevos rancheros for breakfast. After some general laziness, I helped out with the math department mystery hunt team this afternoon for a few hours. (The mystery hunt is a bit hard to explain -- basically teams solve difficult puzzles of all different types for 3 days straight, 24 hours a day! As you solve the puzzles you get more puzzles and they all help you solve one big puzzle. I suppose that sounds a little bit awful, but actually it's fun. I don't have the puzze-solving energy to be there all the time and stay up all night, but I have enjoyed hanging out and working on a few puzzles.) Tonight, after I retired from the mystery hunting, Matt and I made ourselves a nice dinner. I had planned to go out after dinner, but staying in and having some peaceful time to myself was just too tempting!
