Tales from the field!

Well, here I am, almost a month later. Bad blogger, bad! Ah well, not like anyone reads this anyways.

So I'm home in beautiful Nova Scotia again. The weather was awful for a while, but the sun has finally decided to come out and produce heat again, so that's a good thing. I'm well into the swing of my new job now. It's been pretty cool, I'm getting to do a bit of everything. We've dug some archaeological test pits (all empty so far :( ), done some geologic sampling (I'm learning tons about glacial deposition features that I didn't know before...and yes, that's a fine and interesting thing, at least to a geek like me!), and if they ever get me the program I need, I'll be doing some GIS work and mapping as well. I'm really enjoying myself, and I'm very happy I took the job here.

In other happy news, I'm going to New York City in August with my boyfriend and best friend. I'm really looking forward to it. We're going to see the Broadway show The Producers, and we're going to see Blue Man Group. I'm really excited about that, I've wanted to see them again pretty much since the show ended the first time I saw them. And even better, we're in the splatter zone this time! Yes, their show has a splatter zone. I'm giddy with delight that we're going to be in it. If you've never seen Blue Man Group, you should. No arguments, just do it.

In the happiest news of all, the boyfriend and I can finally see the end of the long distance. In December he's coming here to go to school in Halifax, and we're finally going to get a place together. We're very happy about this, and I'm definitely counting the days. Yeah, I know it's still several months away, but we've been doing the long distance thing for over two years now, and it's getting old. I'm so glad to be able to put a date on it ending.

So there's my life for the past month in short! I'll be updating a bit more regularly now, I promise.
