Weekend Pith: Don’t Forget to Dance

The Russian and I are going to a wedding this weekend. And not to brag or anything, but we're pretty good at wedding dancing.

The Beginning of Adventures

It's not really the beginning ofΒ all the adventures. We've already been to El Paso. It was hot, and pleasant, and you could see Mexico right over the poor excuse for a river. It was lovely.

I have less than a year to go for my Bachelor's degree while he has over two. Married college students are a rare sight.
