I would just like to apologize for being absent lately and then go ahead and apologize for being frequently absent until mid-May. I have reasons (I prefer not to think of them as excuses) for being absent from the blogging world. First, my parents were here a lot recently with Mom's Day for my sorority and then my door falling apart so my dad was here for essentially two weeks to get it replaced. I also went with my boyfriend and friend to visit relatives who live only a couple hours away, which I am glad we did because my uncle is now in the hospital. And then my dog that I have had since I was 7 years old died. And now I have three tests and a group presentation due next week with finals following right around the corner. On a positive note, good things have taken up my time as well. My thesis experiment should be up and running to be piloted next week, I had a relaxing spring break where I finally finished a painting for my boyfriend's birthday (it was last August), my little brother got his eagle scout award, and I have an interview next week for a fall internship. Being busy is my way of life, which just makes it hard to make full blown posts, but I will try to get at least a few short posts up whenever I have an extra moment to breathe.
Until then, I hope you can forgive me.
