I passed!! =)

My testing is done! I passed and it feels great to be ABD (all but dissertation)!! I didn't run too much during the first part of this month but I am getting back to it now that I have more time. I am a bit out of shape but it feels great to be running again. The following is just a bunch of stuff that happened while I was away.

Picture of Back Bay Loop in Newport Beach. I really liked the guy on the horse.

Spring was here but then it disappeared again... I like the rain though. :)

Daysi Rose chillaxing. I have never seen a hamster take a nap outside of its cage but this hamster I have just kicks it. It is pretty funny actually.

Running in sycamore canyon. This place is amazing after it rains!!

It is my birthday the 28th so the other grad students threw me and all the other March birthdays a little bash. It was very sweet.

This weekend Heidie and I went to Lake Arrowhead to hang out with Heidie's friends. Very cold but very pretty. This is a picture us us hiking around Lake Jeffery. We left just in time - a big blizzard hit right after we came down the mountain!


  1. CONGRATS! That's awesome!! You must feel sooooo good!

  2. Congratulations on passing!!! Loved the pictures. Loved remembering Lake Arrowhead. I haven't been there in decades!

    ps. Happpy birthday : )

  3. Whoo hoo! Whoo hoo! Congratulations on passing, girl!

    And happy early birthday!

  4. Yay! Thank you guys! :) It does feel really nice. :)

  5. Hey, Kate! Check out Charlie Alewine Racing. Charlie and his wife, Debbie, run the races. They are all low key but super awesome.

  6. congratulations! Love your photos. You guys do look cold in that last picture. It has gotten cold here again too. I so want spring. :) Happy Birthday on the 28th!

  7. I'm lovin' all the rain too, even if it keeps me off the trails. And, though I'm a week late, congratulations on passing your test[s] and resuming with the rest of your life. I hope to join you in another week on that front.
