Braaaaaains...

I am alternating among:

-Meeting with students to chat about how their exams went and how to switch up their studying methods. This can be draining for me, as an introvert. So. Many. Students.

-Prepping all the various pieces of the course (lectures, assignments, etc). I am trying to get a leg up on exam-writing this time because the first one kicked my butt pretty hard.

-Leafcutter Manuscript of Doom. Having had some time and space away from it is allowing me to reapproach and ask the big question: How does/could this work impact the field at large? CMW was good at continually asking that question, and she's correct about its importance. Then I have to dive back in and think hard and write awkward, vague things, and refine them, etc.

-Mentoring grad students here. This part is fun because it's vicarious science for me.

Collectively, though, this all still feels exhausting. My sense is that the feeling will pass, but patience has never been my strong suit.
