January in Review

I’ve been in class for only three weeks now, but it feels like a lot more than that.  The month has flown by, and I can’t quite believe it’s almost over.  In these opening weeks of the semester, I have mostly just adjusted to classes since clubs are only now starting again.  Although I plan…

Going Home!

It’s hard to believe that a week from now I’ll be back in West Virginia!  The last couple weeks have actually been pretty relaxing, even with finals approaching.  Thanksgiving break was definitely relaxing, although it was a little strange to have dinner with only six people, since the meal was just for people staying in…

Veteran’s Day and the VLBA

By far one of the most remarkable events of the past two weeks was experiencing some actual November weather.  Although I’ve had a lot of Christmas drinks from Starbucks over the past few weeks while working on end-of-semester projects, it’s stayed about 80 degrees here in Tucson.  On Kitt Peak, however, things are different.  I spent…

Midterms!!!

Well, it’s midterm season.  It’s hard to believe I’ve been in college for almost two months now (or that I’ll be coming home for Christmas in another two).   Fortunately for me, only one of my classes has an actual midterm exam, and that’s done.  On the other hand, I have three presentations due in the…

A Brief Note

This post will just be a quick update with mostly pictures, since I haven’t done a lot in the last two weeks excepting last weekend, which was packed.  Friday night, I saw the Broadway version of The Little Mermaid, then on Saturday, my roommate and I went on a picnic with the astronomy club and…

For the Time Being

There’s a Sylvia Plath quote I used in my graduation speech that says, “Remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now.  Live it.  Feel it.  Cling to it.”  I finished reading a really good book this morning called A Tale for the Time Being that talks a lot about the way time passes and how we…

Remember Moments

In the last two weeks, I’ve either had three places to be or absolutely nowhere.  This means that in between stresses, I’ve done a bit of reading.  The novel I’m nearly done with at the moment of writing includes the quote, “We do not remember days, we remember moments” (All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven)….

End of the Summer

Well, this is a week later than planned, but I’m actually moved into my fall dorm now!  Originally, I’d intended to post last Sunday before packing up, but since I didn’t do a lot of exciting things while in UAdvantage, I thought I’d combine the post with my move-in week to make it more interesting….

Pasó Por Aquí

Pasó por aquí means “passed by here” in Spanish, and it sums up the trip West my family made to move me out to Arizona.

The World is a Book

As Arabic finishes, it’s time for a road trip to move all my stuff across the country – Hello Rt. 66!
