So here it goes.
I just officially finished my first semester as a Junior at Penn, ending with a bang. That is, I took my Astrophysics final, met with my film professor, and marked the end of the semester by switching to gmail (email@example.com, but firstname.lastname@example.org is still fine as well), and creating this pretty awesome blog of mine. I've got two weeks to move out of my apartment, say "L'hitraot" (aka see you soon, instead of goodbye) to everyone I know, and get on a plane to Israel. I'll be back for the first two weeks in February, so don't get to teary-eyed yet. Save that for when I leave in the middle of the month to spend what should be an incredible semester abroad at the University of Melbourne in Australia. Sounds great, right? Let me know when you're coming to visit.
So I hope you enjoy the blog. I may send out e-mails once in a while just in case you're forgetful about checking up on me and aren't constantly wondering how I'm doing. As I get used to this process, it might start getting more spiffy, with photos and other fancy things, but for now I'm keeping it simple. Most importantly: don't forget to write! I want to hear how you're doing too, whether it's in the form of comments attached to my posts here, or by e-mail. I might actually learn how to use Skype too.
And if you've got any advice, recommendations, or goodbye wishes... go for it! I'm all ears.
