Star Light, Star Bright

Okay, it’s official. The Spring 2016 semester is under way. I have classes up and running at three schools. So far, we’re off to a good start. The students have been responsive, and I am doing my best to shake things up and make them think a little bit. I also had my 2nd lecture at the Hayden Planetarium. It was really cool! We don’t get to see too many stars, with all the light pollution in NYC. So, seeing the Hayden dome filled with little pin pricks of lights is kind of mesmerizing.

couchToday is the last day of the first month of the new year. So far, it’s going okay. Slow and steady progress. I managed to get my apartment repainted, which meant sleeping on an air mattress and living under plastic tarps for a week, and there is a glorious new teal couch in my living room. Some home improvement is going on. I tried out an improv class, and I signed up for these astronomy lectures, so I’m learning new things. I also have a new office at work that I only share with one other person – a little more prestigious. Thanks to my mother and my sister, I am getting more exercise than ever before with our New Year’s challenge. My mom is thoroughly trouncing both me and my sis, which is embarrassing. How can a 60-year-old woman be so incredibly active?? It’s that FitBit she wears. Some kind of Voodoo magic…
