Summer, grad school's rough start, promotion, and running again.

Hello all! Despite being as far north as Alaska, England is finally showing some signs of summer. Mild signs, but at least it's something. It gets dark around 10pm and the light comes busting through the windows at about 4am. I think it's keeping me from falling asleep, and as a consequence I'm having a bit of trouble getting out of bed. It sure beats the alternative of it being dark all day long.
So grad school wasn't quite what I expected. Actually it was, but that doesn't make it any less annoying. I ended up dropping my first class and changing my degree. I found history to be, well not really my subject. So for at least the next 9 credit hours, I will be taking classes towards a transportation and logistics management degree. Now that's a mouthful. I'll start my next class in early July. It's on my to-do list to register. Good times. I'll be back at it soon enough.
For those that care, I beat out everyone with a DUI and I still have a pulse, and so I've been promoted to Captain. And there was much rejoicing! Not a big change. I was hoping that the red carpet would be rolled out where ever I went, and that the earth would quake beneath my feet, but no such luck. Oh well, I'll take the bigger paycheck.
After just a month and a half of pure laziness, I think I'm back up on the running horse again. I ran 7.5 at a 7:08 pace yesterday, and felt pretty good. I'm going to register for a 10k in early July. All the locals will probably smoke me, but it will be good fun. It's just me and the clock anyway. Hope all is well with you.
