Manic Thursday edition!
Thursday, January 23, 2020
It's good to be back into a normal rhythm! I'm keeping up with school demands relatively well, and math isn't even too stressful. I have my first math quiz today, and I need to start studying for a mineral test that we are having in geology next week. Looking forward to it!
It's back to normal Pacific Northwest Winter -- gray and drizzley but in the 50s. The days are getting longer, and the days automatically seem less gray when the sun isn't setting at 4 pm. Of course, the short nights and long, warm days of summer make these short winter days well worth it! Compare are more than 16 hours of sunlight at summer solstice compared to Miami, which has less than 14 hours :)
I have a late lab today, then I must rush home to quickly make dinner because I have a meeting as a new North Sound steward. Excited to learn about the opportunities available for helping the local marine environment. We will survive the damage we have caused to our environment and climate, but it's going to take millions of small actions -- I'm doing my best to do my part! Yay, science!
I'm off to campus early today so I can catch one of my professor's office hours. Today is probably my busiest day of the week. I'm already dreaming of the weekend. The boy-child and I have a couple of green areas on the map we earmarked for further exploring on Saturday. We are looking for a good homebase that is close by and suitable for daily adventures in the woods.
