My apologies for the long absence. I just moved across country again, so now I'm typing to you from a new spot on the world's mitten. The left mitten. Yus. No more blizzards for me.
And it's summer (in 24 hours)! Huzzah!
I'm pretty much living a crazy new life at the moment. New mode of transportation, new job, new house, new roommate (kinda), and new cat. Yes. I got a cat.
His name is Artemis and he's 3 months old. Adorable, cute, etc. I could ooze adoration about him all day, but I don't really think you all want to hear that.
The new job is actually school again. If you've been reading my journals, you'll know that I'm headed for my Ph.D, provided I don't go clinically insane on this crazy venture. I've switched from studying birds and sunflowers to viruses that attack fish. Neither of which I am allergic to.
(Dried out sunflowers give me hives) I've been on the job for three weeks now and I'm overworking myself trying to please my new adviser since she actually pays attention to me. I've already been through all the field work I should need for the year and I'm just trying to hit the ground running. I've been told "You look dead. Go home" twice this past week from her. (I was tired, but I don't think she's realized the dark circles under my eyes are typical irregardless of amount of sleep) I have a cubicle at my new place in major need of decorations. So, if anyone wants to doodle me something for it... I'll print and hang it up.
Hold my hand: done, need to set up scanner
