There is beauty all around

Graduation is basically here, which is a little strange for us MELPs because we don’t actually finish until August 1. But try as I might to remind myself of this, I am getting pretty wrapped up in the whole thing. I have this giant sense of accomplishment that comes with the completion of a degree. […]


I just finished up my last final today. It was for Admin, and it was an ungodly 8 hours long, but I did end up finishing early, so it wasn’t too bad. There was also a strict page limit, so it wasn’t just a mad free for all for eight hours of who can remember […]

One Week

Why, it’s the last week of classes already!! Who could have known that this semester would fly by so quickly? As Sanders stated below, we have a lot of papers to write this semester. She and I have all the same classes, so I also have only one test. Although it is Admin, I think […]

It’s Official!

Alright, there are only two weeks left of class! Ahhhhh!!! I have two projects due before the end of classes, one on Wednesday and one on Thursday, and I have quite a bit of work to do before then. I am very much looking forward to the end of the semester though, it has been […]

And one more thing…

Visiting students day is coming up next Monday! Are you all excited? Perhaps we shall run into each other and not even know it…it is always strange when meeting internet people. On the off-chance that we do meet, say something like, “I love your blog” and then I will feel like a celebrity and probably […]


This past weekend was glorious. Jake and I took a nice long walk looking at all the budding trees. With the exception of last weekend and the snowstorm from bizarro world that lasted about three hours then vanished completely without a trace, the weather has finally been warming up. Everyone is making maple, and the […]

Back to School, Back to School…

Well, we are all back from Spring Break, and I think everyone had a refreshing time of it. Although, I know many people, myself included, who agree that it could have been about a week longer. I stayed in town and my husband took the week off work. We didn’t do much but hang out, […]

Still chilly up here…

It is still cold up here in Vermont. I wish it weren’t so pretty so I could be angry at the weather for just a minute. My husband and I went down to Baltimore this weekend and had a lovely time. One of the great things about being in New England is your relative proximity […]

Getting in Gear

Things are really ramping up around here. We are surprisingly about halfway through the semester and I have reached that all-too-familiar place when I say, what? Finals are when? So soon?? I’m not ready!! I’ve got a few papers due this semester, and I think only one typical “final”, which could be good or bad. […]

Ahh! Global Warming!

Professor Parenteau showed this to us in my Climate Change and the Law class and I thought it was really funny. I showed it to my husband and he didn’t really even laugh. Maybe someone out there in blog world will appreciate it as much as I do! Climate Change is proving to be an […]
