I've been really busy with Fall Academic Advising. Students are starting to trickle in to my office hours and my e-mail's been saturated with questions about courses and the major, so sorry it's been awhile since I've posted.

On top of the job duties, there's the parenting duties and my futile attempts to maintain some balance. I'm sure it'll work itself out soon.


I haven't seen a theater movie in a month, which is a long time for me. Though, Netflix has been good of late. Got any recommendations?


I need to revise.
