Getting Closer to Home

I was in Fairbanks for my classes all week. It was fun and very cultural. I am learning so much about Alaskans...I have lived in a urban bubble my entire life, who knew???

I met some neat people and think I may know what I want to get a degree in...I asked my adviser what she thought, we'll see what she says! Not even going to say, she might redirect me...who knows?
I'm in Anchorage for a couple days, waiting for pooooooor JR to fly over and get his wisdom teeth removed. OUCH! I'm missing all the fun at home, crazy snowstorms (I better see if anyone blogged about them, the pictures and movies everyone posted on FB were GREAT! Made me homesick, I love storms as I've mentioned many times. My hotel is the cutest! The clientel is pretty 2 star, but the staff is very friendly and the motif is funky-modern with lots of lime green everywhere! I'll take pics after my room gets cleaned and breakfast, amazing brand new cardio machines and free weights, a pool, wireless internet and the best desk ever (well except for the Marriott I stayed in a couple of years ago in downtown SFO) the Marriott University is my latest favorite hotel in ANC.

I have no pictures of the gathering in FAI, there were some gorgeous coats and beaded everything, but mostly it didn't seem respectful to be snapping pictures, I just listened. I'm on a different laptop without a single picture soooo I'll post a couple pics of my kid! I am going through old pics on an external harddrive for his Eagle Scout Court of Honor in t-14 days!
He's sooo cute! And I just heard that a friend who moved 2 years ago is also going to Seattle University....he hasn't declared his intentions yet, but I'm betting SU it'll be.... going to meet me in ANC and go visit downtown SEA with me????

Ohh I HAVE to finish 17 credits by Mid-May....6 are almost done, 4 not too hard and 7 are super-hard classes....I shouldn't be playing on the internet much :(


  1. Hey Gal have some fun for me I am doing the hospital bedside sitting with dad he has severe pneumonia, and has some congestion around the heart, severe swelling in both legs weakness on the left side it isn't responding as well, but we are staying upbeat he is getting the best of care they have whole teams working a round the clock every hour on the hour, so it is the old wait until the infection clears. Jr has grown so much. Gal what ever you chose to go into you will too great.
