Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all. I can't believe we've reached the final week of 2008. Where did all the time go? 2008 was a great year. It found me transitioning from working 7 months in Chicago to school at Ball State for graduate school. It found me returning home to Louisville for summer work for the first time in 2 summers. It found me making new friends and catching up with old ones. There's not much I can complain about, well there's that whole economic downturn that may or may not be a curve ball as I graduate from school and look for a job. But I can't control that and I'll save that for another day.
It's been a fun semester here on the Archinect blog. I hope you've enjoyed at least something I've posted. It's only going to get better as I work toward resolving my thesis proposal. I'm going to celebrate Christmas with my family and then on December 28, I catch a flight to Lima, Peru to join my sister and brother-in-law who are traveling the world. I'm going to hike the Inca Trail and gaze upon the marvel that is Machu Picchu. I'm expecting the experience to be as good (or better) as arriving at to the Great Pyramids which I experienced 4.5 years ago. I'm oh so giddy right now.
I return on January 9 and it will be time to head back to Ball State and complete my education. So this is it for me in 2008. Take care, Happy New Year, and I look forward to 2009 here on my Archinect blog.
