I just found out today that I got accepted to present a poster at the Wildlife Society Conference this fall in Anchorage. That’s right…this fall…about three weeks before the wedding. :) I’m excited and a definitely nervous, but I’ve been working with this stuff for over five years now, I think I know what I’m talking about (let’s hope so anyways).
My halau (hula group) is going on a study tour of Hawai’i over Memorial Day weekend. Clarke and I have decided to be money-smart and not go so that we can afford the wedding and honeymoon (woo hoo!). We’re bummed about missing out on the great experience (not to mention vacationing with our hula sisters and brothers), but we’re so excited about the wedding that it pales in comparison. We’re still dancing and uke-ing away though, and I’ve even starting taking the ‘ukulele class. Our halau performed at a convalescent hospital a few weeks ago for a friend’s 96th birthday.
So I’m going to try to update more often. It might not be earth-shattering news, more of a day-to-day (or week-to-week) thing, but it will happen more often.
