August 23--Sucked into the vortex

I started back to work formally on Tuesday, and immediately got sucked into the vortex. I could feel it. Tuesday started with a last-minute meeting that ended with, "and there's another meeting you need to be at on Thursday morning."

I spent most of the day yesterday writing the next exam for the summer group, who go until October actually. So the summer-fall group.

I woke up at 3:30 this morning, and couldn't get back to sleep, so here I am. I will go in to work soon and get stuff done before the meeting I have to go to.

I saw a meme thing about all the places you have lived, so I thought I would do that too.

Oakland, California (Native Californian--4th generation!)
San Lorenzo, California
San Antonio, Texas (Military basic training)
Wichita Falls, Texas
Bitburg Germany
Mountain Home, Idaho
Newport Beach, California
Huntington Beach, California
Alameda, California
Oakland, California (second time around)
San Rafael, California
Santa Clara, California
Sacramento, California (Transferred up here on a 112 degree day, and vowed to leave as soon as possible--still here 34 years later)
Elk Grove, California

There you have it.


A leftover turtle picture from last week. One area of the creek is now covered with algae, thanks to the heat. I saw another turtle emerge covered in it. He looked like a green Cousin It.

The other thing about this picture was that someone here had been talking about the use of negative space in photos, and I am susceptible to those type of suggestions. It's one of the things I love about looking at people's photographs here--they inspire me.
