I'm baaaack.

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, I promise. Things have been hectic - school, work, etc. Though things have been busy, I've been having some fun. A few weeks ago I was selected as the gonfalonier for the College of Science during the December graduation ceremony. If you were like me and have no idea what that is, let me explain. Each college has a banner that represents it, and the person who carries the banner out during the ceremony is the gonfalonier - and that's me! I was nominated by the biology advising office and gladly accepted the position! I'll represent the students from the chemistry, physics, statistics, mathematics, and biology departments this December. Very exciting! And a great reason to go buy some new shoes (which I did!)
I have been having some fun outside of school, however. Andy and I drove down to Houston a week or so ago to see Ben Folds in concert. I've loved Ben's music for several years now and was very excited he was coming so close and the tickets were affordable. It was a fun concert with a crowd of people who really loved Ben and his music. He was a great performer - engaged the crowd, told jokes, played some goofy songs, and was overall super entertaining. It was a bit of an early birthday present for Andy and I for each other. The only bad thing about the concert was having to drive the hour and a half home at 1 am. 
Things are getting in order and school is beginning to wind down with Thanksgiving break on the horizon. I've gotten two of my graduate school applications turned in and am very close to finishing the others. Then it'll be time to wait and hope. 
Hope everyone had a great Halloween (we stayed in and watched scary t.v. shows) and will have a great November. I've got some new items for the shop, so pictures of those will be coming very soon!
