End of Summer

Tomorrow is the first day of the fall semester. I'm materially, but not emotionally, prepared. Summer is never long enough. Where did the time go?

  • Did enough classroom prep that this past week hasn't been too bad.
  • Went through the first half of a general chemistry text, to brush up.
  • Visited a few museums in Balboa Park.
  • Finally visited Julian and Oceanside.
  • Performed the July planetarium shows at the RH Fleet center in Balboa Park.
  • Quick trip to see the family in Sacramento.
  • Visits from Paolo, Carl, Bob and Laura and kidlings, and Kirsten and Aaron.
  • Saw four (FOUR!) movies - Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage (awesome), Inception (solid), Predators (silly entertainment), and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (enjoyable, sorry it isn't more successful).
  • Glorious, glorious Comic-Con
  • Concerts - Rush and w00tstock.
  • Great staycation, with pics below.

Took the train to Carlsbad.

Looks like the time mostly went to having fun! Hope y'all had a good summer, too!
