My good long-distance friend Steve sent me this card today, and I found it too funny not to share: Thanks, Steve. Actually, I’m a lot less worried about making friends than just getting this move going.  The program is a two-year standard grad program, so half the kids I’ll be working with are new like […]

I wanted to try and update every few days, but life got in the way as usual.

Someday, I hope this will be my office.

The move is coming soon.  Big changes are on the horizon. Right now, I’m dealing with the emotional part of leaving.  Over the 4th of July weekend, I got to visit not only my family, but Scott’s family as well.  And this past weekend, I managed to make it to four parties – one thrown […]
