Yet another journal entry...

[ #12139 ]
It's a Monday, on one of my "off" weeks. I try to schedule my meetings with my student staff, who I meet individually on a bi-weekly rotation, so that I'm busy one week, and lighter the next. So, this is one of my off weeks. The main work item I have to do are the end of year evaluations for my staff. Fun stuff, I just need to sit down and write the damn things!

Which is why I'm writing in the journal now.

I hiked a bit of the Appalachian Trail yesterday, a co-worker and I drove about 5 miles off campus, and walked the trail back into town. We thought it would be downhill most of the way, but there was a section where we had to climb about 150 feet at a 30 degree or so angle. Maybe this doesn't sound too bad to the mountaineers out there, but for me, it was a bit of a haul. But, after the feelings of vomiting passed, it was good. A great day for a walk outside.

For those of you into genealogy, I finally made the leap across the Atlantic, and have sent letters to some churches in Poland, trying to find information on the families of my great-grandparents on my mom's side. I found some templates online to write letters in Polish, so I cut and pasted to my heart's content on Friday, and posted the letters on Saturday. Of course, it may take up to a year or longer to hear back, but I'm a patient guy. At least I finally sent the letters.

I also sent out today some letters to churches in NJ where some of my family went back in the day. It'll be interesting to see what comes of those.

I thought I would get more of a response to my humorous B5 journal entry before, but c'est la vie!

I have nothing much more profound to say now, so I think I'll get back to work now. Bill Hicks is playing on the computer, so I will reflect and laugh soon...

More later...
