This weekend I drove for 13 hours, visited Chicago, hit 100,000 miles on my car, and saw Hamilton. As wonderful as it was, I couldn’t afford to be completely absent from our research, so right after Hamilton I went up to my guest room in Chicago (I was staying with family), pulled out my laptop, and worked on our paper until after 1:00 AM. I think Hamilton gave me the motivation I needed to write late into the night!
Now I’m back at work ready to start week 8. Only three weeks left… yikes.
