Life is good.

Let me give you a peek into my academic life. I'm currently working on an assignment for a hypothetical radio pitch based on an episode of NPR's This American Life. My particular idea concerns interviewing a few of my favorite bloggers and weaving together a story of their lives behind the blog. In my Seminar in Songwriting class, I presented my first assignment in which I wrote a new song around the lyrics to CCR's "Proud Mary." And today in my Computer Science class, I made an animation of a leaf falling from a tree and tumbling to the ground with Adobe Flash. Life is so good. I almost don't want to jinx it.

It's finally starting to cool down a bit here in DC. Coming back from London, I had this false impression that summer lasts forever here. But my refusal to adapt clothing choices to climate is quickly backfiring. Time to bring out the fleeces (50% off...) and put away the flip flips.

In other news, Gitnerblog readership has increased back up to London levels. Thanks for reading everyone!
