University of Hawaii at Manoa

SoestJust finished applying to the Geology & Geophysics Department at the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) at the University of Hawaii, Manoa.  My friend Adrianne Oakley from Bowdoin College is a graduate student there.  My very close friend Rachel Seabury has also spent 3 yeas on the remote Islands of Hawaii including Kauai studying albatross nesting areas.  I have been speaking to several faculty members there and may have opportunities to travel to Iceland to study the only area of the world where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge rises above sea lvel or to study the volcanics of the Island of Kauai with a volcanologist.  How amazing would it be if I got to spend the next 5 years of my life in Honolulu?  Click on the link to check out the school.

Kate and Adrian came over tonight to hang out for a bit and watch the Celtics play the Sixers.  Seems like everytime I sit down to watch a basketball game with Josh it goes to triple overtime. Great game but the Celtics lost... oh well... who cares... The X-Games and the Olympics are coming up!!!!
