Country Air

In the midst of paper-writing and last-minute problem set completions I decided to take last Friday and Saturday night to go up the Lakes Region to visit a few friends and relax. They have a small cabin, a large green house, and a home-theater setup built for video games. Saturday we did a four-mile hike around a lake with views of a new ~10 MW wind-turbine installation nearby as well as a large waterfall.

The country air was just what I needed to relax and get my mind away from class for a bit. The temporary physical distance from the day-to-day makes the next few years of class and work on the horizon look easy. When I’m stuck in the thick of it day after day the continuous grueling schedule can wear on me. But the stepping-back makes the three years I have left look smaller.
