My Life Coaches

These guys were sitting around talking while I was trying to get some work done. As they had nothing better to do, they decided to give me a hard time about not updating my blog. So now it’s updated.

Really cool pic of the Northern Lights.

I just found one of the coolest pics of the Northern Lights. There’s more on the Hicker Photo site.

My favorite news story of all time!

I don’t know if it’s because it reminds me of something that, sort of, happened to me or maybe the story just makes me homesick for the South.

The story has a picture and the quote to end all quotes, “foxes don’t like to be caged, especially when they are alive.”

Please read the story, it’ll brighten your day.

If you ever lived in the former Soviet Union:

I’m doing a research project and I’m asking anyone that has ever lived in the former republic to please answer this very short survey.

Northern Lights-Aurora Forcast

I’ve had the best luck seeing the northern lights these last few weeks. Seems like every time I go outside at night, and remember to look, the aurora is really putting on a show.Here\'s one of the best pictures I\'ve seen of the lights.

The picture came from the Poker Flats Research Range.

The Geophysical Institute also has a cool forecast page.

My Mom is coming up in May. I hope she gets to see them.

It’s Snowing!!!

I got up this morning and it looked like a Hallmark Christmas card scene outside. What a beautiful snow. Problem is, I need to get out to me bear-bait station and get it posted. I was hoping with the warm weather we’ve been having I would be able to do that without snowshoes, oh well.

April is a tough month for me. I have like a gazillion projects due for school and this year it’s even more pressing because I’m supposed to graduate in May. But April is also when I start getting the hunting fever really bad. On top of hunting fever, I’ve also got the prospecting bug real strong this year. A friend and I just got permits to dredge some good-looking spots up north.

I’m hoping to combine prospecting and bear hunting. Does that sound like a good combo? I think it does.

Well, I better get back to researching.

Time to start it up again

Well, now that I’m in my last month of my last semester as an undergraduate, I think it’s time to crank up my blog again. It’s been about 3 months or so since my last blog. During my hiatus I’ve been to North Carolina, started going to the gym again and doing an awful lot of school work.

I am in the middle of an internship with the Fairbanks Daily Newsminer

Working there has been a lot of fun, everyone has been helpful and I’ve improved my writing skills.

And for the record, this is not an April fools joke. : )

Working at the newsminer has prompted me to start blogging again.
