Done? Done with what? It’s not my PhD program–although I intend to finish by June, I am not there yet. And it’s not a sign of me giving up on anything. Rather, I’d like to think that I am done with discontinuous weeks for a while. What?
How fortuitous that this song popped up as the eighth song of the day! Today is 10/23, and this corresponds to the base and exponent in scientific notation of Avogadro’s number. In particular, it is 6.02 x 10^23. This is a ridiculously large number, but it is the number of particles in a mole of any substance. Yes… today is Mole Day, so enjoy it, my fellow scientists!
I heard this song on WNUR a few months ago, and the varying musical qualities of it really drew me in… it seems to have influences from all across the world. So, I might as well give a brief post about my preference to world music.
(However, I can’t find an online stream of it other than on Spotify. Title: “Parimal (Viaje Tantrico). Artist: Subhira. Album: Transubhiriano.)
It’s a very short post today:
A river is time–
Sometimes rushing, sometimes dammed,
Life flows–Be water.
Today is the two-hundred and ninety-fourth day of M.M.X.I.V. That makes forty-two weeks.
Today is the twenty-first day of the third round of O.C.T.O.B.E.R. That makes three weeks.
I got to see my full family last weekend, and my parents and one of my sisters this weekend. I figured that some photos (eight of them) may speak louder than words, since I didn’t encode the music that I heard today. So, here goes, along with captions. They are approximately chronologically arranged. (There are no pictures of the actual wedding, as I have not obtained any of them yet!)
