The Best For Now

On a rainy Tuesday afternoon during finals week, I finally figured I finally have enough time to blog. School and life in general have kept me posting anything. Putting up pictures in this medium are second priority to everything else. Though late, out of order, minorly edited, here they are. Don't complain.
This photo (see slideshow here) got national first place for SPJ feature photo as well as the Daily being the best college newspaper. Mom and Dad were proud. The victory got some press on MinnPost (they say hire me sometime) and City Pages. Enough gloating, enjoy pictures...
