Well, it took a little more frustration and work than I expected, but I've been accepted to the Fall '07 Vienna Study Abroad program. I was informed earlier this week that I had been accepted as an alternate, which I wasn't terribly happy about. So, I e-mailed the guy in charge and asked some questions about the alternate status. He wanted me to come in a talk and after I did and we cleared up a few things he admitted me to the program! Yay! I'm really excited to go. Hopefully I'll be able to not only enjoy Europe but work on my german and start writing a possible honors thesis while I'm there.

In other news, my intramural basketball team got destroyed last night, 55-29. Not a pretty game. The refs were pretty bad and it turned into a bit of a brawl. Heber was the only person on the team that could consistenly score and that just won't cut it! bleh.

Little mix-up

Somehow my previous blog got lost somewhere in the vast underbelly of Google. They wouldn't let me access it through signing in. So, I created this one. Nice to be back, thanks!

Life's been good lately. I've been enjoying my classes, they're really quite interesting. My german is definitely improving and I'm excited about going to Vienna next fall. (I haven't been actually ACCEPTED to the program but that's just a minor technicality)

Went on a date last week (yeah, that's right, I went on a date). It was rather good. We went to Carrabba's and dominated one of their tables for 4+ hours. I don't think they much liked us but they were forced to be hospitable. We took advantage and talked there and other places for 6-7 hours. Time flies when you're having fun, eh?
