When we weren't busy trying to solve unsolvable radiation or fluid dynamics equations, we found some pretty awesome ways of passing the time. I joined a handbell choir with my church, attended yoga classes, and played intramural flag football with some of the other meteorology graduate and undergraduate students. My husband ate lots of hot wings, drank lots of beer, and trained for (and finished) a marathon. We also traveled a bit around the region; my husband took a trip with a friend to Boston, and we both visited Gettysburg, Annapolis, and Washington D.C.
I saved our student IDs. This is by far the BEST ID photo I have EVER taken in my life. And, of course, I only was able to use it for two years.
