It is Written!

I’ve just turned in my senior essay (which I glossed in a recent 7 Quick Takes) and I took some celebratory photos.  And yes, I did dress up for the occasion.

Between finishing the essay, making it to church for the Triduum, and spending Easter Sunday with my boyfriend’s extremely extended Italian family, there was no blogging this weekend.  I’ll be posting a few last thoughts sparked by comments on recent posts tonight, and tomorrow I’ll have some of my reactions and questions after Triduum services.

Oh, and my history major friends took pictures with the giant pile of books they cited, but I wrote a polisci paper about the internet, so here’s the thesis hanging out with my laptop instead.

    Congratulations, Leah! I seriously love that picture. Everything about it is wonderful! Aren't Italian Catholics the best? I just love them and their huge gestures.
