Fall break is finished.
Tomorrow I return to classes and life. This week has been so wonderful. I loved having enough time at the gym that I could run and lift weights. I enjoy exercising so much more when I don’t have to cram it into a 45 min block. I guess the same goes with singing. there were […]
Yesterday we had several of Tom’s med school friends over for dinner, in belated celebration of our wedding. It was a lovely night, and perhaps the first really fancy dinner we have given. It was fun to set the table using our new place settings, as well as to use several of the class serving […]
A morning with Photoshop
I have been wanting to learn some new skills on Photo shop for the last year or so. Tom has been showing me techniques from time to time, because he listens/watches to a daily pod cast about it. Today, after reinstalling photo shop I decided to spend the morning learning a few new techniques. It […]
Toronto with the Acorda's
This week is my fall break, and Monday and Tuesday Tom had break as well. So since our trip to Athens fell through we decided to head up to Toronto. I have been wanting to go for a while, and since we had the time we decided to go for it. Remembering the family we […]
Fall break has officially begun- well I guess I still have art history, but I audit that so it’s a fun class, and I have a piano lesson, and I enjoy that too. This wasn’t a stressful week for me fortunately, I only had one tough midterm. Tom and I are heading to Toronto for […]
I grade papers for Ms. Mahy’s English Diction class. I find it a difficult task. Especially on short answer questions. Tom and I have been discussing test writing skills and the fact that many professors lack them. When a question contains two parts but then signifies that it is worth 3 points- doesn’t that mean […]
Ode to the Blog
So in the past I have sent out a weekly family e-mail. Then it extended to a weekly e-mail to family and friends. Then it incorporated 2 families. Then I started a blog. Now, I am just going to blog. (Yes Dad, blogging has been around for so long that it is now a verb.) […]
Pick her- Pick him!
I had another audition, for yet another performance opportunity. I am delighted to say the audition went really well. This time I tried a new technique, I didn’t prepare. I was singing the same rep I had performed last week for the concerto competition, so I was musically prepared. However, this time I waited until […]
Barbara Ann Barbara Ann
Today after Stake Conference Tom, Erin, and I traveled to the gorgeous town of Kent to visit our dear friend Barb Huff. We loved the beautiful windy route through painted trees and peaceful lakes. It was wonderful to see Barb. We have missed her presence in Oberlin. We loved seeing her in her new role […]
I just liked this video so much. Go Devin and Phil!
