23 June 2010


I have so many photos that I've shot in the past several months, I just have an aversion to sitting at the computer these days. I swear I'll get new images (and links) up at some point.

In the meantime, one of my classes just ended (it was only eight weeks long) and I took my final today - I got a 97.

So I guess staying away from the computer and devoting lots of time to studying is paying off.

still here, just not around

School is taking up most of my time. I have a lot of studying to do.
I'll be back soon (I hope) with some photos and updates.
Until then, enjoy the sunshine!
