When I was working on my PhD I was afraid GRRM would finish The Winds of Winter before I finished my dissertation, because that would ruin my dissertation.

Missed my connection flight. That'll teach me to wear headphones ever again. Thankfully I've been rebooked to the next flight at 21:30, so with any luck I'll make the last bus back to campus at 23:00.

Tomorrow begins my first ever TA job. Here’s to an interesting semester!
