One Last Update!

Hi everybody,

I know this is over a day late at this point, but I’d like to think that having two finals and a final project all due on the same day and then having to turn around and pack in a single day before flying home this afternoon gives me a relatively good reason to be late.  And if it doesn’t then I’m going to have to hope that the three pieces of good news I’m about to share make up for it.

First, my final project has been posted to my portfolio!  It was an incredible amount of fun to put together, and a substantial amount of time and effort went into producing something meaningful, so I hope you’ll check it out and enjoy it.  Of all the pieces of work I’ve produced this semester, this one is definitely my favorite.  Also, if you guys liked it or feel something about it strongly or want to let me know what kinds of things you'd like to see in an opening ceremony for Boston 2024, don't hesitate to shoot me a message.

Second, this is the last update post I’m doing!  Now that the crush of finals is over and I’m back home, I have the time at night to dedicate to producing content worthy of posting on my blog.  However, the schedule is going to be changing just a bit.  Up until now, I’ve been trying to post mostly between and 1 and 3 in the afternoon, because that was when I had a short period of time in between classes on Tuesday and after my classes had all finished on Friday.  However, since I’m going to be working over the summer I’ll have to move my posting time back by a few hours.  From now until college starts up again I’ll be posting to my blog on Tuesday and Friday, between 8 and 9 PM.  Get ready for some punctual, thoughtful, and (hopefully) interesting content!

Finally, I've come up with my sign-off!  I've been making do with "here's to the weekend" on my more conversational posts on Fridays, but for a while I've wanted to come up with a sign-off that's a little more personalized and that captures a bit more about me.  You can check it out below, and I hope you enjoy it.

With excitement and optimism

P.S. I’m posting this on my flight, which makes me feel awesome in all kinds of ways.  I just updated my blog while suspended 35,000  feet in the air and hurtling through the sky at 550 miles per hour.  That’s just so cool.  Thank you JetBlue, for giving me free in-flight wi-fi.

P.P.S. I'm sliding this little addition to my blog post in late because I've been a bit negligent.  It occurred to me that I've never really acknowledge everyone who's helped me produce the work in my portfolio, so I'd like to just take a moment to say a huge thank you to anyone who's ever helped me, be it by editing or suggesting ideas or just by acting as moral support.  I couldn't do it without you guys.
