Speaking of romance, Jon sold his iPhone 6 Plus to our good friend, Derek, and bought the iPhone 6. This way I get the phone I want once he upgrades because I get all his hand-me-down iPhones. Jon really likes the Plus, but it’s just a little too big for my small hands. While others may not find this very sweet at all, it’s actually Jon’s way of showing me his love, which is so him.
Jon doesn’t blog consistently, but when he does, his posts are so much fun to read. He’s got a very distinct voice, which I think is the essence of good writing. Over the years, my voice has evolved through this blog, and it has unknowingly helped me to develop my academic voice. Academic writing has changed so much since I was last in school. These days, writers are expected to blend their unique, personal voice with academic material. It’s easy to write with a passive, unbiased voice, but to write in a way that makes the topic come alive is the real test of grad school.
Back to my original point, you guys should check out Jon’s recent posts on Trello and Machu Picchu. Occasionally, I browse through his Old Digital Soapbox, and it seriously makes me laugh out loud. He’s got a wicked sense of humour that sometimes actually gets him out of trouble when we fight. I heart him so much.
My program breaks for spring, but then I have to take summer courses in July and August. Since I’m short some psych credits for registration after I graduate, I will be taking two more undergraduate courses in May and June. This means I have no summer. Nonetheless, there is a lot to look forward to.
We’ve been seeing the geese in pairs lately, which leads me to believe it’s mating season. I can’t wait to see this year’s goslings. Anyways, it’s down to the last two weeks of school, so this will be my last post for awhile. Try not to miss me.
