Hi.

Been a while, hasn't it?

I'm studying Geography at the University of Washington. It's my last quarter. I don't know exactly what I'm going to do with my life after that. Probably I'll work for a telephone company or a mapping company. Maybe I can do mapping for the telephone company?

I want to have this job, playing telephone man in Antarctica. To do that for the US Antarctic Program, you need to get Raytheon (the polar services contractor) to hire you. For that position (there are two positions, senior and junior, both for 1-year appointments), you need two years of industry experience. I'm not sure whether anything to do with mapping would count. I suppose I'll just have to see ...

My intention is that by the time I accomplish this, I'll be near 30 years old and have another plan. Maybe involving children.
