Never seem to find the time

Today [Saturday] I sent my first email to Peter. He hasn't replied yet. From this I draw the startling conclusion that Peter is not Chris. The email was prompted by a small confusion over question 2 of assignment 8; once that's cleared up, I will have only the thinky parts [questions 3 to 5] still to do. There's a nasty QUAN assignment due this week, too.

Going over the solutions to assignment 7 I made a rather remarkable discovery about eigenspaces, and although it looks obvious in retrospect, it's made me feel happy.

My work patterns seem to be a little strange this trimester. I'm working harder than ever before [evidence: unfamiliarly regular study-induced headaches] but I also have long, disconcerting bouts of free time, like this evening. Empty blocks in my day could be taken as a good sign; they indicate that I'm not having to use all of my resources on only two papers. This surplus suggests I may actually be capable of handling Plan B. Even what I call Plan A would require me to work harder than I'm currently doing, so all things considered, free time now is good in the long run... wherever that may end me up.
