I really only spend one or two days at the office. I have to be there all day on Tuesdays--it's the day all the students are on campus and we have office hours, sometimes (like this week) I have to lecture, and we have all our faculty and team meetings that day. Most of the time I get there at 6:30 am, before anyone else. I make the coffee.
Wednesdays are a mixed bag. Sometimes, if I am lecturing or have a lab, I have to get there really early. Again, I make coffee. If I don't have any responsibilities on campus on Wednesday, I can stay home in the morning. I meet my students at the hospital in the afternoon so they can pick out their patients for the next couple of days. I have grad school classes on Wednesday nights until 10 pm. It's often the longest day of the week for me.
Thursdays and Fridays are spent at the hospital.
I have every Monday off. Mondays are the best day of the week for me. It's the day that I have the world to myself.
I was thinking about the Lincoln movie while I was sitting in class last night. There was some mighty fine acting in it. Not just Daniel Day-Lewis, but the supporting actors too. I'd be ok with them giving everyone a prize or something.
While I was watching the movie, I would think, "this has to be the best scene in the film", and then an even better one would come along. Sometimes I'll watch a movie, and think it's good, but the next day can't remember anything about it. This isn't one of those.
Another in the one-two-three series. I have a longing to see more of these. I think it would be cool if you creative people out there adopted this as a project and made one-two-threes of your own and put them around your neighborhoods and photographed them. I'll be waiting patiently.
I entertained myself this morning by reading about the Beyonce national anthem business. Panem et circenses.
