In other news, I'll be heading back to Wisconsin for a high school friend's wedding. I'm excited to see all of our mutual friends and to celebrate this important event. I can't believe it's been over 10 years since I graduated! I still have flashbacks of high school, especially if I'm in an uncomfortable situation with caddy women, out-of-my-league handsome men and/or superficial conversation. I wonder if anyone manages to get through that experience unscathed? And are we forever who we were in high school? Does that really define us?

Summer is here, so my field season is in full swing. Virginia had a pretty wet spring, but the last couple weeks have been unbearably hot. I hope this isn't a reprisal of last year -- aka the drought. The pathogen I study needs rain and cooler temperatures (70's or so), and if I hope to graduate this January, I need the weather to cooperate!
