Lots of things

I have been negligent in blogging for the past week or so. Here is a very quick run down (in no particular order):

1. I joined the swim team and have been practicing for the last two weeks. I love that someone gives me a work out to do. Tomorrow, I'm ordering a sweat shirt!

2. I turned in my PhD application. The actual deadline for the application is Wednesday. I assume I will know something by the end of October.

3. I have been very proud of the NKY community in recent events. A friend of mine's mother passed away unexpectedly last weekend, and I'm very impressed with the way the community has rallied around my friend's family. My mind is marinating a post on this topic, we will see if it comes to fruition.

4. My brother departed for Iraq last Friday. We are sending him many prayers, and I would love it if you could keep him in your thoughts. I am going to miss him a lot this year, especially because the internet connection is going to be spotty and we won't be able to talk on IM!

5. My parents are on a Mediterranean cruise. I am very jealous.

6. I start data collection for my thesis on Thursday.

Good luck on the thesis! I agree -- we should be thesis buddies. I had a meeting with my adviser today and he gave me a gold star ... gotta love it. :)
