So, for my sins, I signed on for a post-grad paper (community ecology), on top of my full-time job. Finding it pretty stimulating, actually, but juggling all the demands on my time has been... interesting.
Anyway, got an A+ for my first assignment, writing a research proposal. Now I've got to actually do said proposal... which looks like involving an annoying amount of data wrangling just to get started on the interesting stuff. But making progress. Good to be back in the science study seat.
