I'm officially done with undergrad. So that's that.

In recent news:

  • I was awarded the 3rd Agnes Gund President's Traveling Scholarship, $4,500 for the trip to Inis Oírr. 
  • I managed to pull straight A's for the first time in my life.
  • Commencement was much more fun than expected. Mostly because all of our faculty were wearing crazy silly hats and everybody was so incredibly happy and excited.
  • I'm in the midst of a single-handed conquest against my brother's old room with hopes to make a decent work/studio space. 
  • As of yesterday I'm in the process of quitting smoking. I was hoping to go cold turkey but I'm having a difficult time; yesterday I had a total of 4 cigarettes. Today I've had two (one of which I had half around 3pm, and just had the 2nd half of it about five minutes ago...and it made me feel quite ill for a moment.) I normally smoke about 20 a day, so this is massive in-itself. I'm just ready to be done with the filthy, smelly, expensive things.
  • This means that Brógan has been going on loads of walks and jogs. And my bike is getting plenty of use. 
  • Currently finishing The Return of The King
  • I miss Joe greatly.
So summer is here then. 

And with school done that means I have very few things left to gripe over. What will I talk about now?


  1. Congratulations, especially on the scholarship. Much relief all round.

    I've been told I'm a Hobbit, by the way.

  2. Thank you sir, much relief indeed!

    I've been told that multiple times myself, It doesn't surprise me, in regards to either of us.
