Bloomin' in the Bubble

I finally eeked a little time for myself in the Bubble. My job is so crazy busy. I'm not sure when the down time is supposed to be on campus - but I haven't really discovered it yet. I will admit the week off between Christmas and New Years was lovely. For that I am grateful. The trouble with this extreme schedule is that it is only going to get busier and busier as we head toward graduation! Another crop of 'kids' ready to take on the world!

So...enough is the card.
