Vote with the TWC button to see the new bonus comic!

Well, although I'm made some progress on both fronts, I've yet to finish either the grading or my current trip prep task (getting plane tickets). Lately it seems like I have to divide my time between way too many different tasks, which really slows down progress on many of them. But I won't have any grading next week (at least once I've finished the rest of the current (unusually large) batch) and I should have a good bit of time over the weekend to finish researching flights (flying to Asia from the east coast is a whole lot less convenient than from Hawaii). Other than that, and taking care of Zack, the only other things on my mind right now are that Thunderbolt Fantasy is pretty cool (you can watch it on Crunchy Roll, if you're curious) and some social / political things (which I make a point of not talking about on Pebble Version). So I think that's about all I have to say for today.

See you Monday!

2/15/2017 Work on the computer...

In addition to the aforementioned grading, I'm also trying to work on some trip planning and early prep as well. What trip? I may not have mentioned it here on PV yet, but since there isn't a job change or big move looming, Connie and I are planning a summer trip. Zack is going to make things a little more complicated but, honestly, it'll probably be easier to travel now than, say, in a year or two when we have to worry about him walking off on his own. Anyway, the plan is to spend around three weeks in Japan and two in China. Since it will be Connie's first time in Japan, and my parents will be joining us for part of that leg, it'll mostly be me playing tour guide to areas I've already been. Though it'll still be fun and I'll still be doing a travelogue. In China, we'll be visiting Connie's parents but, while she and Zack will stay with them the whole time, I'll probably be striking out on my own for a week or week and a half to do some touring. Anyway, I'll post more about the trip once the details are worked out.

Later!

2/13/2017 Grading time

It's my first "grading week" of the semester. People always ask me how my students are each semester. And I tell them that I can't really say for sure until after I've graded their first assignments. Well, time to see what kind of start this semester's students are off to.

Anyway, I've got a bit of a headache right now, so I'm heading off.

Later!
