I am nearby reaching a deadline. This post corresponds to Thursday, September 6, 2018.
The brain worked as my energy allowed during the day. I did some progress in my essay, did the reading for a class, administrative work, and defined the speakers for the coming next two weeks in the colloquium.
The night class was OK today, still useful learning from the discussions, and had time for dinner.
Jian and I went for a nice short walk around I-House neighborhood after my dinner. I showed up for the first 20 minutes of a floor meeting before going back to room.
Despite washing my face, I just need few sleep. It turns out that it was an unexpected nap from 9:50 PM to about 1:00 AM. I edited a progress from my manuscript draft, submitted it, and replied few e-mail logistics that I need to do by 9:00 AM. It is an administrative paperwork which requires some approval signatures. My manuscript deadline, and meeting is at 1:00 PM.
I will get other 4 hours of sleep. The day should start at 6:00 AM.
