Today is July 4th, happy birthday America!
Officially today is a day off, but I felt too far behind to relax. Instead I spent the majority of the day working through my data.
The notable exception tot this day of work was when I went to a holiday barbecue hosted by professor Wechsler. The food was good, the company great, and the chance to relax exquisite.
The highlight of the barbecue was when a giant grapefruit-fight broke out between the younger children (boys) and the REU participants (also boys). The battle lasted around 30 minutes and left the yard (and clothes of the participants) covered in broken rinds and juice.
I, of course, chose to remain apart from the battle, to better avoid sticky clothes and grapefruit filled eyes.
Tomorrow is another day of data crunch, but I feel like I may be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
