6 Days and Counting
I completed the first draft of my thesis a few days ago. I sent it to my advisor, made most of the changes he recommended, and I'll be sending it to the rest of my thesis committee today. I'm about 1/4 of the way through creating my PowerPoint slides for my presentation. Despite all this, I was able to take some time off (a whole day) and ski into the Arestua Hut, a backcountry ski hut that is about 5 miles from the local ski area. I logged it's location with my new GPS, so now I can try to get there from the top of the ski lift, which should make the trip considerably shorter. The day before that, Ashley and I tried to go skiing at the resort. We made one run, a nice powder run at that, and then they shut the lift down indefinitely due to wind. In about a week I should start having more exciting blog posts as I plan to take some time off before starting work, wherever that may be.
