Let's about some general updates from the week?

On Tuesday I had lunch with Beth, who I worked with at my previous job, and who also happens to be working at my current institution.

It was nice to catch up with her.  She is very thoughtful and extremely dedicated to community work.  I always appreciate hearing her perspective on working with college students and her approach to building a program.

On Tuesday I also did a class presentation.  It was a work-in-progress presentation about my class project.The presentation seemed to go well; now I just have to actually finish the project!

Today the weather forecast was a 100% chance of rain, which found entertaining. How often are they ever 100% sure of the weather?

The office was really quiet today.  I had work to do, and was fairly productive, but most of the day it was just KC and I in the office, and we had a chance to check in and debrief about a variety of projects, which was nice.  In the afternoon I met with Rick, one of the VISTAs.  We're working on a story project, and I think we made some progress.

On a very minor note, I love the socks Melissa gave me for my birthday!

Alright, that's a pretty random assortment of notes, but it's kind of fun just to dump the events from the week onto the page!
