Summer Has Arrived

Oh my goodness a heatwave has hit Massachusetts! If summer wasn't here before, it has definitely arrived now. I must admit, I'm not really a fan of excessively hot and humid weather, and I'm glad that it seems to be...

Dog Days

Well I was right about my online class - it is all the work of a normal semester class in half the time. We had a research paper due at the end of our second week (last weekend)! That assignment...

A Glimpse of Summer
