Jaime and I have been finishing up preparations for our summer NSF-REU program in Biocultural Anthropology. Not the most fun way to spend the first week after graduation (even worse for her since OSU is on a quarter system and she's still got classes).
But yesterday I got a few emails from the incoming Fellows that broke me out of my old stodgy put-upon professor mood and reminded me why we do this job. They were sooooo enthusiastic about starting the program next week.
Nicely timed wake-up call before the weekend. My family is coming in for a short visit during which I'll lounge and enjoy their company, then next week, back to setting up for what should be another interesting summer.
