I just received some great news today. Instead of teaching the geology lab, I get to assist in teaching the field methods class next semester. This is the sweetest teaching assistantship in my department. This means I get to work only on Saturday next semester. This means I get to go camping in the Appalachian Mountains for spring break. This means I get to go to Durango, Colorado for senior field camp this summer. And I get paid to do it.

I am a happy camper.
