After a LONG month apart, I'm is FINALLY in California! I even survived a cross country drive from sea to shining sea, a dissertation proposal defense, teaching my own class . . . . why just experience one life stressor when you can just get them over with all at one time!:-)
I have to admit, as much as I LOVE and ADORE Boston, the weather here is super nice- warm but not too hot, not too humid, and a breeze is usually present. Its as pretty perfect as weather can get, which is refreshing from the extremes and wacky unpredictability of Boston . . . but that's part of what makes it so charming.
So, I'm here and getting settled and beginning the process of my dissertation research! But, I promise I will have much more exciting, fun, and random posts to come! And maybe I can get William to contribute sometimes as well :-)
