I See The Light

At the end of the tunnel, that is.

Yes, the semester is slowly ebbing away, sliding its way from my grip. I have finished a Phonology take-home final exam last Friday. It was basically an extended homework assignment, and I did the task and got that out of the way. So for now, all I have is a paper that I need to finish by next week Tuesday. And of course, I don't plan to use all week to finish it.

Aside from that, my experiment design is also doing well. I have been meeting with my adviser every other day throwing ideas against each other. So that is also getting settled, since I have to finalize everything in my experiment design before I head for Manila this end of May.

The new apartment is also working well. There is a final thing that I have to do, and that pertains to the dryer. Hopefully, that is settled within this week, and then I have everything up and running by the end of the week.

Stress I guess is a big part of my life. And according to other people here, I am doing a good job in managing it. I don't know if that is true, but hopefully, it is. Oh well, I still have two years here, at the very least, two years to finish my coursework (and everything else that is needed). Hopefully, those two years will pass smoothly. Although I doubt that it will.

So, here is a new photo series for you. Last Spring Break, a friend and me went to Old Fort Niagara, an 18th century stronghold that guards the mouth of the Niagara River in Lake Ontario. It was a cool place, and a cold one to visit. So this is my Old Fort Niagara Series. This first picture was taken near the entrance to the fort. It was snowing the days before, and it just melted for a few days.



  1. Hey, great that you're adjusting in your new apartment. I hate moving myself. And same here... about accumulating junk when you know it's not going to be a temporary home. Anyway, it's great that school is out and you're about to have your vacation. So just enjoy! :) Stress is definitely a part of life... especially if you're a student. But it's also what makes it exciting. The photo of the fort is really great!

  2. Toe,

    I guess that is one way of looking at it. Stress makes life exciting! Hopefully, that mentality works well. Thanks for the photo compliments. There are more fort photos to come.
