Um….hello

Hellllloooooooooooooooooo anybody still here? :)

Let’s just say I took 12 college credits of Arabic in eight weeks over the summer and now summer is over, and I’m all, “didn’t I used to have something called a blog? I wonder whatever happened to it?”

  1. Welcome back! I noticed your feed had been inactive, but figured it was just the busy-ness of changing to civilian life.

    So, how much arabic can you learn in 8 weeks?

  2. I did a similar thing with Mandarin over the summer. I know how crazy it gets.

    Welcome back!

  3. Reminds me of the summer I took Differential Equations as a summer semester course. I don't think I got to sleep before 2 in the morning that entire time.

    Good to see you back. I was just thinking about you last night, and hoping you were OK.

  4. Glad to see you're back! I know the feeling, I just finished up a summer semester and was pretty sure I was sinking.

  5. Welcome back! I was wondering what happened to you. Is grad school really that busy? I'm just starting my Master's program (today was the first day) after being out of college for several years and I'm already stressed out by the future workload. Did you find it difficult readjusting to the academic life after being out in the real world for a while? That's what I'm worried the most about…having to make myself do homework again.

  6. I'm not in grad school, this is for my bachelor's degree. I didn't have a problem readjusting after being in the military, I've never particularly enjoyed school so it was just a matter of getting into the habit of doing homework again. Or rather, learning the habit in the first place…

  7. Holy shit balls, she's back! I see everyone is giving you a pass because of your flimsy school excuse. No such luck with me. Get writing, Marine.

    (What, you say something about pots, kettles, and black? Oh yeah, well, I'm trying to catch up…)

  8. Glad to see you back, I have enjoyed your blog for a couple of years. I did the summer intensive thing with Greek and Hebrew (in different years) a few years ago.

  9. I'm sorry to ask you this question here, but I'm looking for help and I seem to be running into a lot of dead ends.

    I'm a Marine Corps military photographer working on a project
    documenting people with memorial tattoos of people who have died in
    war. if you know of anyone who might be able to help me with this or
    someone who has a tattoo along these lines please pass along my
    contact information. I work out of the
    Marine Corps public affairs office in NYC and I can travel a few hours
    by car if someone is in the area. I've been able to identify a few
    active duty Marines with these tattoos, but I'm looking for more including people who have left the service.

    Please feel free to contact
    me about any of the details for this. Since I've started this project
    I've seen the reluctance of some people to talk
    about or show these tattoos. Most times, knowing that they are sitting
    down with a fellow combat veteran helps smooth that conversation. I
    sincerely believe that these tattoos says so much about the way that
    we as service members carry the memories of our brothers with us for
    the rest of their life, and I have a great opportunity to share that
    with the world.

    Here is my contact information:
