She will be away for most of the week next week, but she gave me a small project to work on. She has a small outreach budget from one of her grants, and she wants me to do a bit of research on what we can do with that money. I'm thinking we can get some sort of hands-on earthquake science kit that grad students can take into classes (or do as a workshop at the university). There is also a day-long event for high school students coming up in May, and she wants me to come up with ideas for a 1-2 hour workshop we could do.
I will also be working on some data analysis from my PhD/1st post-doc work, since we want to get a paper out on that work soon(ish). I'm giving a talk to my new research group too, which should be interesting.
As much as I love (and I mean L-O-V-E) having this time off, I'm excited to start something new and, honestly, to get out of the house!
