Phew! I'm still alive!

Whew, this week has been insane. I have been on campus all day, every day, pretty much this entire week. Between an exam, 2 labs due, and getting everything prepared for our trip to Wallops this weekend, I have been one. busy. lady. The good news is, I forced myself to stay up way past my bedtime last night and totally rocked my map lab that's due today! That's uncharacteristic of me; I never do any work in the evenings (no all-nighters for this gal!)...I'd rather wake up super-early and get my work done. I've always been like that. But I worked until about 1:30 this morning, and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out!

The overall idea of the map brochure (that's what it is, by the way) is kind of silly, but that's not the point. The assignment was to create a map brochure based on an image that we were given, and a dataset of our choosing from the US Census website. My image was a WWII-era postcard of factory workers, so finding a dataset from the US Census that would work with that So I went with the population density of women aged 65+, because they were the "Rosies" of their time. :)

So...long story short, I'm super-glad to have that out of the way....normally, I'd be spending today freaking out trying to get it finished before its due at 6:30 p.m. but now I can relax and take it easy today! I definitely plan on staying indoors today.... it snowed last night, and its a freaking Winter Wonderland outside. EWW! o_O
