A whole year!

It was exactly one year ago that I found out that I had won the Santander Scholarship. (I keep a journal and write these things down, don't laugh) I still remember how cool it felt to find out. It was a boring Tuesday at work, but the news made it far from a regular day. The passage of time continues to shock me. I can't believe it's been a year. Now I am not sitting in an office in downtown Harrisburg, PA but in the student lounge in Birmingham. Craziness. 

Dissertation is going well. I complain about the chilly weather, but I have to admit that it is actually more conducive to writing than sunshine, blue skies, and heat. There's the silver lining I've been looking for. Exams for undergrads have ended, so the library and campus in general is a peaceful place again. Unfortunately it means that goodbyes have started, and some of my friends have already departed (I'm a poet! Totally unintentional) But there are plenty of people staying over the summer, and we'll definitely make the most of it.
