I’m already forgetting that I’ve been in graduate school for only a month and a half. It seems much longer.

I’m hoping to move this blog away from purely reporting on science news toward something which might be more useful-thoughts about being a graduate student in physics, advice to undergraduates, issues related to the life of a developing graduate student.  However,I don’t intend this to become a diary.

So here goes the first try (on the next post), I’m sure I’ll have space to improve.
