Kathleen, hello! A former Pomona student who reads my blog from time to time told me that you had your own blog, and I was delighted to have a chance to catch up with you. I do hope the semester lightens up for you–the only strategies I have for dealing with such circumstances are denial and beer, in that order. If you’d like to join me in some denial and beer next time I make it out to Claremont, let me know!
