I don't post enough

Yeah, I know, I am a lazy blogger. I should write something every day. My problem might have been that I started my blog right before Christmas break, and so I wasn't at school with the internet for a while. Now that I'm getting back into the swing of school I think I should be able to keep up better. Hopefully.

The most interesting thing I've done lately is fieldwork in Jackson Hole. We went down there last Monday-Wednesday to get some cores. We ended up with two. I guess that is good. I don't like coring, nor do I like the whole rest of my project. Eh.

On a note that has absolutely nothing to do with anything, last night we watched the old movie Failsafe. Man, that movie is really freaky. Danny and I were saying how it ranks right up there in freakiness with the original Mad Max movie. The scene with the shoe is a lot like the scene with the phone melting. Creepy. There are just some movies that you should see once, but no more.

Yeah, so it has been a long time since I've posted, and that's the worst thing anyone can do in a blog, I know. I'm sorry.

I'm working on cataloging and organizing my references. In my proposal I have two full pages of references!!! Most people at my stage have 7 or 8, maybe 10 references that they've read and include in thier proposal. Sheesh! Talk about overkill. You'd think I was writing an NSF proposal or something!

I've been looking through the papers I've read (which includes MORE than just my proposal references). I've got 45 papers. I don't have a favorite. Some were really boring. Anyway, now I'm trying to separate them into categories for easier reference. Fun!

We are going to get one or two cores a week from today, down in Grand Teton National Park. It'll be way cold, and I'm not looking forward to that. It'll be nice to be able to get started on something other than writing my proposal. Especially since it is done.
