Where is everyone?

Usually by this time the office is full of grad students; right now there are only four, counting me. Where is everyone? Is today a holiday that I don't know about?

I'm not complaining. The quiet and lack of interruptions means that I've been fairly productive with a minimal amount of stress.

And yet... deadlines loom. Thesis!


This post's theme word: sciolist, "dabbler; an amateur who engages in an activity without serious intentions and who pretends to have knowledge."

There's some serious shit going down with the political landscape in Ottawa at the moment. Personally I didn't make it into the office until just now cause I was waiting for an address to the nation of the prime minister.

Aha! A good reason. I knew there had to be one.
