Sorry it's been quiet here all week!
I've been interviewing for various jobs, and I am excited to announce that I have taken an offer!
I'll be working in Antarctica starting in August for almost 7 months.
So exciting, but now that has materialized, I'm a little terrified as well.
I'll be going down when it's still mostly dark, and only a small number of people are down there. Not many people get to experience the winter, and I will be arriving just in time to see the sun climb a little higher in the sky every day.
Since I'll be deploying in less than two months, this space is probably going to change a bit. I'll still be posting, and lots of pictures as always. While I'm traveling and working down there, this space will also be for sharing my experience with my friends and family, so there might be much longer entries, but more sporadically posted.
Suddenly, all of the green things, that are still just blooming and sprouting here, are even more precious then before. I hiked in the North Hills late in the evening last night, and sat in the grass, feeling so fortunate as the sun set.
Here's a pretty good video of what it will look like!
Since I'm packing up and heading out so soon, I'll be having some special things going on in the shop next week, exclusively for readers! Stay tuned.
