I movd back to Marion a little over a week ago and I can honostly say things have been very busy since then! I had originally planned to stay in Anchorage as long as possible to spend time with friends and co-workers I knew I would not be able to see for a very long time. What I did not consider was that I would need a few days to adjust to a new time zone and get settled into my new home before classes and work started. The result:
Yes, I have been working and learning here for about 10 days now and I have yet to finish unpacking my boxes. Whenever I do get a free minute from reading (the amount of reading in grad school is insane!) or working I have been spending my time either catching my breath or visiting with old friends. I think those things are important enough to put off a little unpacking for.... but not too much longer. Despite being terribly unorganized most of the time I am ready to walk into a room that has everything in its place with no extra work needed!
On Saturday I took a short study break and biked across the street to Goodwill. I was hoping to find some fabric for curtains and came across a few other treasures while I was there! The only downfall to not having a car is that not everything fits so nicely on my back!
