Update

We have started school! And we are busy already. Here are a few highlights from the past couple of weeks.

I presented at the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction's Annual Conference. Two of my fellow graduate students and I presented a ninety-minute session twice on Thursday. It went well, we had a room that held about 45 people and it was so packed that they had to turn away people both times. It was very nerve wracking and not very fun, but it went well and I am glad that we did it. And very glad that it is over.

Andrew's Polaroids have been on display up in the Viking Union Art Gallery and they came down last week. I know a lot of people wanted to see the display but were not able to because of the poor hours of the Art Gallery. He got a few pictures of the display before they took it down. They aren't the best but if you click on the pictures they will get bigger and you can see most of the individual Polaroids.

I started my final quarter of classes. This is supposedly the hardest quarter of my program and so far, I'm not arguing! I have a ton of homework already...no fun for me this quarter!

Andrew has started playing in a band started by one of his friends. She writes all of her own music. They have their first gig on Monday at 9pm at the Acoustic Tavern.

We got our eyes examined and picked out new glasses (we have both had the same glasses since Junior year of High School). When we get them back we will post some pretty pictures of our new looks. I know being able to see is kind of an essential thing, but eye exams and glasses are REALLY expensive! I am so jealous of all of you people with perfect eyesight!

Abbey has turned into a thief and likes to steal things. Especially Andrew's beanies and anything interesting out of the garbage. Any suggestions on fixing that?

Other than that we are both just back and work and doing lots of reading, writing, and math! I will try and be better about keeping you all posted throughout the quarter!
