Alright, have I been the worst blogger? Yes, and I’m sorry. But graduating, packing, cleaning, and saying good-byes is a bit more time consuming than I would have imagined. Let’s see if I can play a little catch up:
02 | PASSED MY THESIS DEFENSE (and revisions!) and presented my research at UW Undergraduate Research Day. Although I was scared, blinky, and felt unprepared, it actually went over really well and I got to here all my lovely peers’ research too. Bob, Courtney, Chris (who’s group won best senior design project)…Way to go everyone!
02 | Laramie: A Gem City Atlas opening reception was May 2nd. If you’re in Laramie, it’ll be up until June 18th at the University of Wyoming Art Museum. You should check it out. Here is a digital version of the map I made, but I assure you the print version is different. And you’d be missing all the other wonderful work by the other participants.
03 | Ummm…so I graduated! BA in English, with honors. Minors in Graphic Design and Professional Writing. Cum lada. I’m going to miss the English department!!!
04 | Movies watched (or re-watched): The Invention of Lying (I really liked this one!), Black Swan, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog (always good), Rio (probably a little too cheesy for me, or I wasn’t in the right mood), and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
05 | Our lease ends May 31st so Carissa and I have been packing and cleaning like mad to get ready. Of course we had to listen to some dance music to cope with our plight:
06 | I traveled home on Saturday listening to Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt on audio book. Have I told you how much I love listening to that particular audiobook? It’s a lot. (And what better way to celebrate earning an English degree by listening to one of my favorite English majors?)
07 | In the works: I’m working on a logo for HealthBreak that’s been really fun. I’m also soooo close to redesigning this blog…maybe June.
08 | Really enjoying this 5-year diary I bought. My first entry was on graduation day, for obvious reasons. Won’t it be nice next year when I get to see what I was doing a year ago. And then in five years?! That’s kind of unimaginable to me right now.
09 | Planning on running away to Portland with Katie. I just need to find a job first.
10 | Bought a new ukulele, case, and chromatic tuner. Impulsive? Maybe.
Here’s a picture of Sarah playing the ukulele during open mic night at Coal Creek. She is truly wonderful, talented, and lovely. Gosh darn it!
