I just finished registering for some fall classes. In a month I start my second year of grad school. I’ve opted for a heavier work load and a lighter teaching load. I signed up for vocal and guitar lessons in addition to my own program classes and am beside myself excited to spend the fall reading and discussing Virgina Woolf. But first, a few more weeks of beach life in southern California, a weekend in SF, a road trip back to Boise, a week in Montana, house hunting, a wedding in Minneapolis and no sleep.
