don't 4th graders know that plants can't grow in the dark?

Apparently some of my undergrads still think it's a question worth investigating.

Anyways... I'm ready for this semester to be over. I've got four major assignments to finish, two labs to teach, and two exams to proctor. Meanwhile, I have to finish making plans to my trip to Nyota. Thankfully I'm finished with grading.

Right now I'm procrastinating. I should be working on the proposal for my required class. After writing 6 proposals already this semester I thought this one would be a piece of cake. Perhaps I'm making this harder than it should be.

On a completely separate note, it has recently become clear to me that my cohort of students in my program is not in any way a unified social group. I kind of thought we were at the beginning of the semester (more or less). There are some unfortunate social dynamics surrounding my lab and I've tried not to get involved in it but I think it has affected me and my relationship with other people in my cohort nonetheless. I'm a little bit disappointed by this realization.
