It’s here! I know. Summer actually started a while ago. But, I took (and passed!) my first minor exam last week, so I didn’t really begin my summer until this week, and I’ve been enjoying the time, doing some work, but mostly not doing anything. It’s been wonderful.

Anyway, there’s lots to do as I prepare for the third year of the program; I’m looking forward to completing the second of two minor exams, taking the Arabic language exam, and qualifying. Fingers crossed that next year this time I’ll have all those things crossed off the to-do list.

To prepare, I’ll be doing work related to all of those things for the next two months, with some breaks and trips thrown in there too, of course. I mean, it’s still summer after all.
