The semester is about to start

I'm about to start my (hopefully, most likely) last semester of school, and classes start on Wednesday.  I feel like I've been working really hard lately and school hasn't even started.  I did a podcast, I'm working on getting my thesis together, I'm working on getting a publishable version of my thesis together, and I'm trying to figure out what to do with  my life.  Plus going to 3 weddings in August, plus my family vacation, plus I did a triathlon yesterday!  Yep, I'm pretty busy.  And I'm going to be a teaching assistant (TA) this fall, rather than a research assistant.  It will be pretty different, and I hope I like it.  The instructors for the class are interesting and smart people, and I'm going to be giving a lecture in November, which is frightening.  I'm also thinking of trying to run the Boston Marathon for charity in April, so I emailed a few charities today to see if they might have space left for me to run for them.  If I get a spot, expect that I'll be asking for donations!  The organizations that I emailed all have really good missions, so it would feel good to raise money for them.

It's hot today and it's going to be hot again tomorrow, but later this week it is going to be surprisingly cold.  I'm not looking forward to winter, that's for sure!
