Arrived home Sunday afternoon with Ray and my brother--my mom stayed in Georgia to help my grandfather move out. It's good being back and having the house more or less to myself. It's also nice to have uninterrupted access to a kitchen and to eat what I want, when I want. (Especially after the massive quantities of food produced to feed 12 people for a week.) I'm still a bit jetlagged, but am fixing that and sleeping a lot. I've been remembering fewer dreams since I got back. There's enough to do that I'm not crazy from boredom but little enough that it still feels like vacation.

I'm on call for jury duty through the end of this week. I've been told not to report today or tomorrow, so I'm more or less waiting around. I started looking for summer research opportunities, but aside from the NSF-REU main page, I'm not really sure where to start. I know I don't want to stay at Mudd and most likely don't want to stay in the LA area for the summer. There does seem to be a lot out there--I'm just not sure where to start looking for something that fits.

Ray wanted to take advantage of the mall's closeness before heading back to Santa Cruz. As a result of that and Christmas money, I now have tall boots, amazingly enough with nice round toes (not pointy, not square). I'd been wanting ones like them for a while.

Anyway, home is being good for me. There's also a kettle here and some very nice Earl Grey from my grandparents'.

Note: at least in math, the NSF REU page's short descriptions of what topics the programs are working on are often out of date at best. I ended up going to pretty much all the sites and actually looking at what projects they'd done recently to get a better idea.

One thing I'm doing, in addition to checking the REUs, is looking at the websites of the various national labs. Some of them seem to have interesting programs, though it seems that they mostly have to be applied to seperately.

It's also pretty difficult to get into the National Lab's intern program through their applications. The secret is in networking ;).
