A day in the life...

Here's a list of things I did today:
  • I taught one lecture of my class
  • I attended a departmental committee meeting
  • I had a meeting with collaborators to work out a paper outline for something we're submitting
  • I met with my student and did some nontechnical advising
  • I had a (brief) discussion with a collaborator about a pending grant proposal.
In other words, I covered the entire gamut of activities one might expect of an academic - with one significant exception. Did you notice it ?

Nowhere in there was any actual research done ! Gaaaah !
