Yesterday, I spent the day in a surreal state. I was super tired, but then also wanting to be super productive. I bounced between sleeping in my chair and working on Upwork, Chemical Engineering, or SSP related projects.
I was able to knock out a few important tasks for SSP. I’m trying to get rolling with things there, but sometimes I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do. Anyway, by this time next year, I’ll be doing much better with it.
I also started logging some of my amateur radio contacts from the storm chase. I have a long ways to go on that project as well.
Yesterday, I started out my morning with a five mile run. My time was not fantastic, but it did feel good to go running again. It had been almost a month since my last run, due to my travels and work schedule.
When I returned from running, I weeded the gardens for two hours. I did so without a shirt, so my back is now nice and red. I can’t wait to strap on my backpack this morning, as I’m sure that will feel great. While I was out there, I replaced the batteries in the weather station, as the transmitter was having trouble reaching the receiver inside the house.
In the evening, I did some cooking and cleaning. I made some delicious tuna steaks, seared and coated with pepper and Old Bay.
I also applied for a handful of jobs on UpWork, so we’ll see how that goes. Some of them were really neat! I also updated my amateur radio logbooks and sent a few QSL cards.
Yesterday was a good day. I spent the day working with students on various projects all day. I ran around and got the final approval for the chem-e-car competition location, and assisted three or four groups. I also worked with the instrumentation class and their group project. I also met with the metal casting group and checked the casting we had done a few days earlier.
In the evening, I took the train home. The train was delayed quite a bit, so I missed the connecting bus in Albuquerque. Then, once the next bus showed up, I missed another connecting bus, as it was late. Finally, I got to my car, somewhere around 11. I did get to spend some of that time reading, writing and catching up my amateur radio logs, so it was still a productive time.
Yesterday was a slow, but relaxing day. I did some housework and caught up on some of my amateur radio log books. After that, I made a few phone calls and had dinner with my girlfriend’s parents. Overall, it was a good day!
