Tomorrow right after class I am heading off to DC to a big ol' anthropology meeting. I'm just hanging out and seeing what's up. I've never been to this conference, but I'm excited to see what it is like. I'm staying with a friend and can get to DC and back for cheap, so it should be a good time.

I just need to kick my cold which I've had for nearly a week now. I came home after class Monday and immediately retired to couch. I have been able to do some lit search work, but I've also been really out of it. I hope to wake up magically repaired tomorrow.

I added a dissertation status bar to my sidebar. I actually want to double what I have now by Dec. 15. I am finding getting closer to deadlines motivating. Also, I am going to teach at the summer program for high school students again, and I have decided it will be awesome if I can make them call me doctor. woo! I'm taking the train to DC and have great dreams of writing away as I zoom down the tracks!

Seconds to the well wishes for a good trip! Might I suggest you take some pictures? You know get artsy with photos of our nation's capital. Or maybe just shots as you speed down the tracks (in between the dissertation writing of course). Love that you can take a train :)
