Visited the Stormking Sculpture Garden north of New York City today with friends from College who have made their way out east. This part of the country can also be pretty, although in a different and much flatter way than Seattle. It has also already gotten colder than a normal winter, which is quite a shame.



Walked from brooklyn back to manhattan yesterday evening. It was great to chat with Justin Cappos, a professor at NYU Poly who was previously at UW. It’s valuable to get glimpses into other schools, and to start getting a sense of how phd work transitions in academia.
