I ended up having the summer off since I am a teacher now, and really didn't know what to do with myself. I stayed up late and drank a lot of wine. I pretty much stopped taking pictures. I decided that having the summer off wasn't the best thing for me.
We went to Thailand at the end of July and spent a little less than a month there. It was refreshing. I took lots of pictures, but for the first time, I didn't post them here.
Somewhere in the middle of summer I decided I needed more focus in my life, so I applied for a doctorate program. I was accepted and started 4 days after we got back from Thailand. It is demanding and stressful, but I feel great. Challenged.
I don't take too many pictures these days other than the cats helping me study.
Malida is studying too-she is getting better and better at English, and is now writing very interesting essays. We have been married for 7+ years!
I shaved off the facial hair at the beginning of the semester.
I guess that's about it. Just wanted to check in a bit.
