the cat has come back... playtime's over

So Dan (my advisor) gets back in town tomorrow.

I've been working... but I'm not sure it's been enough.

I've made progress, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to be able to publish the paper when Dan wants me to.

I'm nervous...

In other news, my friend who's sleeping on my couch just got fired. Seems the eccentric rich dude didn't want to pay him what he thought he was worth... Man... I hope he's gonna be able to find a new job before he signs his mortgage.

arent grad students supposed to set their own deadlines? (okay maybe in an ideal world).....

yeah... but I need to publish this paper soon, b/c the deadline to apply for new time on the telescope is September... If I don't have this paper published in time, I don't really have a leg to stand on when asking for more telescope time. We've (my advisor and previous grad students) had the current data for a few years, and haven't published anything with it... It's frustrating...
