2021 Week 12


March 18, 2020. It’s now been a year since shifting to work remotely due to the pandemic.

It’s been 2 years since I started chemo on March 19, 2019. So, in the last 24 months, I’ve spent 17 of them in isolation at home.

It was also 3 years ago, March 19, 2018, that I took a trip to Arizona to hang out with amigos after getting the diagnosis.

I guess this has historically been a big week for me over the last few years…

And, hey. The Province of Alberta says it’s time to move back to campus for the fall semester. The university is planning for a few scenarios.

🤔 PhD

I submitted a paper to RO-MAN 2021. And continued work refactoring the dissertation.
