Today's word is "time." I thought and thought all day, trying to figure out how in the heck I was supposed to take an interesting picture of time? I could take a picture of the clock and tell you what I'm doing at a certain time. I could tell you how I'm passing my time today (booooring). In short, this day is a pretty unexciting one. I woke up (sick), took my bike in for a tune up, came home (to my mom's house), ate breakfast, drank coffee, answered some emails, surfed the web, and cuddled with some kitties. (Oh. So, I went ahead and told you about my exciting day anyway.) I have been battling a cold/flu/sore throat/upset stomach thing for a few days and today was the day I decided to give in and waste the morning away on the couch. It feels good. I could tell you that at 5:00 today, I went to meet my lovely mother for a shopping fest. I could tell you all sorts of uninteresting crap. Then this little gem showed up in my inbox tonight and saved my bacon.
I know you can't read the time in the picture, but it's 5:21 p.m. And that's the time I was notified that my first journal publication has been made available online. It's the time at which I became a real life published academic. Yay!
