Winter is officially upon us, and although I am spending “winter” in beautiful, sunny AZ (projected high for today: 66), I have not updated here hardly at all about how lovely this fall has been.
My new institution of higher learning is way neato. Most of my classes for the duration of my time here will be held in the Cathedral of Learning, which is a zillion floors high and looks like Hogwarts in the inside.*
One of the cool features is the nationality rooms, which celebrate individual countries. Unfortunately I won’t be taking any classes in them, but I enjoyed exploring! Here are some visual highlights. (Excuse the photo quality for now; still working sans internet and am posting this from my phone.)

Photo 2: clockwise from top left: Turkish room (those lighter colored wood panels double ask fold-down desks!), African heritage and Indian rooms.
Hello, Dear Readers!
Some of you know that I’ve recently made a big move!
Tucson will always be my home, but on Sunday I hopped on a flight to my new one: PITTSBURGH, PA!
What’s that, you say? Pittsburgh? Isn’t it, like…really cold there?
Ah, reader, how astute you are.
Yes. It does get really cold here. BUT it is also home to a marvelous university (a number of them, actually) called the University of Pittsburgh.
Oversized felines must be the name of my game, because I’m going from Wildcat territory to Panther country!
So far, I’ve found Pittsburghians (?? Burghers, better yet) to be very friendly and helpful. Especially cashiers.
