Too much stuff, too little money
Wow, do I have a lot of work to do this semester. Barely able to catch a breath to continue the blog.
Bad news: The State of Texas is asking state Universities to give back 7% of their operating budget. This means cuts to everything, and new faculty in our College are being advised to spend our start-up funds ASAP. This makes me particularly worried, considering that I'm still owed a full one-eighth of my promised start-up funding.
