Thought it was an appropriate background. I was close to choosing something else; it’s almost sensory overload. I also figured out how to make the entire blog space wider so it will stop cutting off the right side of YouTube videos I embed. Niiice.
In approximately 4 hours, Semester 1 is done. Today Colleen said, “If you think of it like a pie, you’re 1/4th done with the pie!” What a delicious metaphor. I would say my graduate school experience so far has been like French Silk.
Speaking of blogs, this is a super sweet one that was featured on Neatorama. These two guys decided to pick a random place in the world and stay there for three months, their thinking being that three months is a good amount of time to get to know the location, not as well as the locals but certainly better than the average tourists. The main reason it caught my eye was that their first 91 days was spent in Oviedo, Spain. Going through all their blog posts was very reminiscent for me, as I recognized tons of the places they visited. It was cool to see somebody else living in the place where I lived, taking pictures of foreign places that became so commonplace to me and my classmates. So it won’t be nearly as great if you haven’t been, but it’s certainly worth a peruse. The duo are currently in Savannah, Georgia, taking pictures, chattin’ up the locals, and experiencing Georgia as it’s meant to be experienced. I guess. Who knows, I’ve never been to Georgia. Here’s their blog:
I hope we get snow soon.
