January 16--Back to school night.

Just as I was typing the title for this, I was taken back to my grade school days, and the night before the first day of class. Brand new clothes laid out, pencil box full, paper bag in the refrigerator with my lunch in it. I can remember how exciting it was to go back to school every fall after the summer off.

I can't say I am as excited today as I was back then, but I am looking forward to seeing the students and getting started. I am not looking forward to getting up at 5:30 again, but I'll get used to it.

I spent the day taking care of stuff. I got a haircut from my friend Alina, who has been cutting my hair for greater than 10 years now. She is always happy to see me. I never really think it is time for a haircut until it is past time. And even then I usually wait a few weeks. I don't mind being shaggy.

I played some Ingress today too. I went around and killed all my nemeses' fields and put up some little fields of my own. It was fun and relaxing, and a great way to spend my last free day. This evening I met up with the Elk Grove players and we farmed for equipment and chatted away in the cold.
