Hey folks. Once again, apologies for my infrequent updates. Not much origami-ing has been going on. But I thought I should make a new post, as it will be my last for a few months. Here’s a quick summary of what’s been going on:
I graduated in the spring with a B.S. in Biology – Marine Emphasis, cum laude, with a minor in Japanese and Environmental Science. A few days after I got a job with Alaskan Observers, Inc., under which I will be trained and deployed on Alaskan fishing vessels as a North Pacific Groundfish Observer. Essentially, I’ll be doing biological sampling for management and conservation purposes. Training is three weeks, deployment will be around four months, and debriefing may last a week or two. I hope to be back at my new apartment in Bellingham around the end of October or the beginning of November.
Hopefully, in the off-time of my grueling work schedule, I will be able to work a bit on origami. But my number one priority will be contacting my wonderful girlfriend, family and friends, as I am expecting to be, for the most part, mentally and socially isolated.
This is definitely going to be an adventure, and will be a good test of my independence and will power. I’ll post an update when I return, and will hopefully have a few origami doodles to show for it.
Thanks for visiting, see you again in a few months!
