how exciting…i’m trying out new things on ye olde blog. really i should be in bed by now, it’s far too late for this little grad student! since tomorrow is a holiday (thanks for that, among many other things, all you veterans out there) i don’t feel the need to go to bed at my normal time, even though i still have a million things to do tomorrow! so here i am, tinkering with the blog, changing a few things, adding some photos of my favorite memories and people, and generally messing around. you like? i bid you adieu with a great song by a great band i’ve been listening to lately…i generally don’t consider myself a huge fan of contemporary country music (more of a Cash, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton gal myself-although i tune into the Taylor Swift stylings occasionally), but if something is good, it’s good. Enjoy.
