I'm back in California and back at work. I even have food in the cupboard again. I still haven't completely adjusted to the different time zone, but I'm sure that will come shortly.
I talked to my advisor today, and he mentioned a conversation he had with an old friend at a recent conference. Some of the work I'm doing came up in the conversation, and with it, my name. Jim's old friend taught my upper division course on differential equations, and he remembered me. I was impressed; it has been seven years. The world isn't really that small, but some days it seems like it might be.
