First off let me say hello from smoggy, cold, and grey Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! What a great gig you have living and going to school where you do! You've chosen a great profession as well. Now for the blog, thoughtful, well written, coming from more of a journal entry point of view, but that's OK. I enjoyed the flow of the writing and it invites the reader into your journey. It was great to see many of your posts had comments from other readers which is fantastic, it shows people are reading your blog. I'd put a site counter in your blog to see exactly how much traffic you get. Keep up the good work and good luck in school. Cheers!
