i think it’s cute when someone admits they have a crush on you
i think it’s a fucking miracle
When I go to bed tonight, I’ll be going off Tumblr until after my spring break—so I’ll probably be back on around March 24th. Data to analyze, papers to write, sleep to get, etc.
If you want to communicate with me within that time period for some reason (or if you just want to make friends??), you can send a message to my ask with some non-Facebook (since I will also be going off Facebook) way of contacting you. I’ll get an e-mail about it and can respond that way.
Wow, I felt so guilty after writing that post that after I checked over my pset I actually went and practiced oboe for half an hour. I’m very surprised at myself.
The oboe thing: it isn’t working out.
True, this is only the second day with practicing on my calendar, but also, this is only the second day with practicing on my calendar, and so far I’m 0 for 2. (To be fair, I have an hour until I hit the time at which I’m supposed to practice, but I’m pretty sure it’s not happening.)
There are three reasons for this:
For now, I’m going to work on my S-290 problem set. I guess if it’s done before 2, I still have a shot at getting on track.
Oops, day #1 and my resolution to practice oboe is already failing. In my defense, it’s because of HRO assistant conductor auditions—that counts as a good excuse, right?
The education research project I’ve been working for since freshman year is the National Center for Teacher Effectiveness (NCTE), and it’s one of the larger sub-projects at the Center for Education Policy Research (CEPR), which is technically where I work even though I usually just tell people I work for NCTE.
Last week, one of the NCTE project managers asked me to help with preparation for a conference that CEPR is putting on in early April. It appears that most of the organization for that is being done by project managers for one of CEPR’s other large sub-projects, which recently hired its own undergraduate intern (recently = <2 weeks ago). The woman who asked me to help told me that I should make sure I’m doing “higher-level” stuff, and that if they have “rote work”, “the other intern” can do that.
The other intern e-mailed me today asking what my hours are because she like, wants us to work together, and I’m super confused because I haven’t been given any actual specific tasks to work on yet, and I’m not sure whether she thinks that she’s going to delegate to me, or is assuming that I have stuff to do and just want to hang out and work in the same place she’s working, or just knows something I don’t. I sort of have a feeling it’s one of the former two, which…is weird.
I guess I’ll just wait and see what happens when we’re actually in the office at the same time.
