The last few weeks have been missing a post. I guess I've been caught up in making great memories with new friends! I can officially say that I have been to an Alaskan bonfire back in the woods and on the beach. The only thing I can say is that the stars are so much clearer when you get out of the city! And when you move to Alaska, you're bound to be out and about at least once late at night and happen to see the Northern Lights! I saw the lights for the first time last week! There were only blues and greens, but I'm hoping to stay patient and see more another time! Classes are going well! Last week, we went on a "field trip" to the intertidal zone behind the science building (the picture above) and we saw cool things like six-legged sea starts, sea cucumbers, crabs, and even a species of sponge. Still loving Alaska, and I am loving the people who are making the time fly faster than desirable!
