I also bought a new Steelers shirt to wear here. Because of their tragic loss to the Denver Broncos, the winter clothing was half off when I left. But as Justin Houseknecht told me on that fateful day, God clearly must be rooting for the Broncos for them to have even made it this far. Perhaps we were already divinely foiled. I'll still wear my shirt proudly when I watch the Superbowl.
I'm now back in Dublin and returned to class on Monday. It's nice to be back and see everyone here, too. We're in a data analysis and statistics module, which is right up my alley! I get to learn some new statistics software called "R", and being the nerd I am, I am loving it. I also bought my tickets for South Africa today. For those of you who don't know, my masters includes a field course in South Africa in March. And some of us are staying on an extra week and going down to Cape Town to swim with the sharks, horseback ride through the countryside, and enjoy the beach. That will technically be my 4th continent, though I would like to spend a fair bit more time exploring South America.
