Office, Yay!
Never had an office of my own before. Well, not unless you count that little room down in the AUS dungeon in which I used to grovel at do work for Ezz. But really. That wasn't an office. That was a broom closet.

Even at Attachmate, alls I had was a cubicle.

So, uh, yay!

Bit of a panic when I got back to town last night... I brought my server back up and saw a bunch of emails in my inbox intimating that I would not receive any funding, and indeed risked being dropped from grad school altogether if I didn't do <random bureaucratic hoop-hurdling> by January 3rd.



But once I came in and talked to them, the story was that seeing as how I had been in to see them prior to my departure (an event to which they had indeed made reference in the aforementioned emails), their subsequent emails getting bounced from my (downed) server precipitated a pretension on their part that I had jumped through the hoops anyway, so it's all good.

Well, almost all good. I'm still not technically registered in any courses, and still not technically signed up to do any TA'ing, but whatever. I'm just attending classes, and TA'ing anyway, and the hoops will wait for me to get to them when I can, after which my status will be (in theory) applied retroactively.

And in the meantime, I gets office!

And now I have class in a few minutes, and then I'm really jet-lagged, so I go home and to bed.

So... why is the world upside-down again?

Our physics department is very crammed, and so a graduate student normally shares a room with four or five others.

I had an office of my own for about two weeks (in the maths dept), but now I'm back in physics. Oh well.
