I had a great time in Chicago with family and friends, and now I’m back in Leuven.
School’s been in session for a week and things are already intense. Yesterday I counted up that between a four hour class on Plato, a conference/workshop on medieval philosophy I attended, and preparation for the class, the conference, and another conference, I put in about twelve hours of philosophy. (Pray for me in the next few hours if you see this- today’s the second day of the workshop and I’m presenting on a paper I did)
Unfortunately almost none of those twelve hours managed to be work on my thesis! The thesis, which is a 40-page paper that will be the most important part of my degree, is moving along pretty well, but isn’t where I wanted it to be by now.
