I’ve been away from my blog for a long time so I thought an update was in order.
In the last few days I presented a poster at the Consortium of Software Engineering Researchers, in Montreal, which I think was well received, I stole four bananas out of necessity and I toured the beautiful Old Montreal (thanks Manuel!); I begun to prepare for my ICSE presentation in Vancouver; Spring arrived; the swine flue arrived and I became addicted to maps of its outbreak; I marked a seemingly endless stream of assignments and final exams; my colleagues and I discovered that we have a book burglar with access to the lab; I ran a 10km race at an excellent (for me) time of 50:16, despite starting to develop tendonitis two weeks ago; and I celebrated my seventh anniversary with Val (today!). So all is well. But I’m happy to be able to focus on my research proposal more intensely from now on.
