Hey PFers, how is everyone doing? It has been over a year since I last posted here (Dec. 07, it looks like), I just thought I'd check in to see how things are going. A good bit has changed in my life since my grad student years... I got my Ph.D. in Jan. 2008 and started working at Rutgers around the same time. In June 2008 I started dating a girl who I knew in college and we got engaged in May 2009. I'm still at Rutgers, but likely planning to move to the Baltimore area by the start of next year. Aside from astronomy, I spend a lot of time on hobbies, including photography and music. Recently, I started a music blog exploring the entire history of western music: http://hopelessjourney.nicholasbond.com/ Ambitious, I know, but I'm an idiot that way. Anyway, give me some updates. Forum upgrades? New mentors? Scandal? I hope Moonbear is keeping everyone in line.
