I got back late last night after the usual 12 hour drive. Thankfully, while long it was uneventful and the weather was, for the most part, clear.

I’m doing my best to get back into the swing of things after wonderful and relaxing visits with friends and family. Thankfully, the University is doing it’s best to immediately reintroduce me to stress. I just found out that one of my course’s focus has been shifted. I’m not completely sure if this new direction, focusing on social reaction to tragedy, is going to work for my research. So I’m in the midst of researching other classes.
