What are your plans and hopes for the summer?
I finished my last term paper today, so I'm breathing a sigh of relief. I've also recently celebrated the fact that my summer is unexpectedly much freer than I'd planned, as my husband just got a new job with a much better salary. The upshot is that I won't have to work full-time, or perhaps at all--so I can spend my summer composing and reading.
Good thoughts to everyone else in their final days! (Ooh...sounds so drastic. :)
Over the summer, I'm planning a few stops for a book signing tour. My first fantasy book is being republished, and I'm doing some promotion for it in preparation for the second book in the series coming out in November.
Probably I'll spend the Summer scheming about ways to make myself a more appealing job candidate.
Best wishes to everyone.
Same here, though it's hitting me every couple of days. (Whoa! It's almost halfway through May!)
Congratulations on approaching The End. I'll be receiving an MA at some point this month, going straight on to the theoretical physics PhD. I need to get through the final oral qualifying exam around the end of the summer, so I'll be spending my summer putting together a committee (the easy part) and doing some research worth talking about (the hard part) -- probably on Lattice Strong Dynamics. (Before you ask, yes, I'm sure they picked their acronym quite purposefully. Physicists can be funny like that.)
A highlight's going to be getting to sit at the big kids' table, which has got me excited. I'm not presenting anything, but I'll get to see the "big time", such as it is.
I'll also be spending a lot of time checking out stuff on the arXiv, and hopefully putting something up there as well.
After that I'll be in Ukraine for 2 months doing intensive language training, and looking for potential research sites.
This semester has been ultimately the worst ever, and I am sooo glad that it is over! (well, 2 days, but close enough)
I'm on the quarter system, so I just finish FINALLY grading my students' midterms only to find out that their final is in 2 weeks. I've been helping them with study sessions and most are telling me that I'm the best TA they've ever had (which makes me blush) but still, I feel so rushed, it's crazy.
After moving into my new apartment, I plan on sleeping for all the hours I gave up staying up late grading papers.
Now on to the summer job/new apartment search.
