I've been extremely busy this past month with 2 presentations, 2 papers and a rough draft of my dissertation. Needless to say, the blog was at the bottom of my "To Do" list. But yesterday, I turned in the last two papers of my public health programme. (Well, except for the dissertation, which is due in August.) It's been an exhausting year, but totally worth it.
Today we had a final seminar about job hunting/interviewing and experiencing counter-culture shock upon returning home (which I'm all too familiar with after the Peace Corps). We had a simple catered lunch of sandwiches (typical U.K. food) and then went for a hike in the afternoon to Ilkley Moors. It has been raining (a few hours) everyday for the past couple of weeks and we were certain the hike would get cancelled. We checked the weather during lunch and it looked pretty clear, so we decided to chance it. It was a beautiful afternoon until we started walking back to the meeting point and saw the storm moving in. We got back to the bus and as it pulled out of the parking lot, the rain came down. It was perfect timing.

Definitely was the best way to end the school year!
