this week's been quite the week. in some ways, it seems as though certain aspects of my job are winding down, while others are just ramping up - it's always exciting to start something new.
we're in a time of year right now where i'm not only looking forward to planning the fresh beginning of the leadership development program that i run (yes, it's starting next september but i need tons of planning time), but new developments with the orientation drop-in program that will be starting in may, and then of course everything that comes with student success + retention programming in the university atmosphere. then, thrown into the mix, there's a small conference in june, and a national conference in november. ah, the life of a student affairs professional - it's gonna be a busy few months!
in between meetings today, i busted out this month's martha stewart living and there was a feature in there for a photographic compilation called egg & nest by photographer rosamond purcell. now, i'm generally not the hugest fan of all things bird and eggy - i don't hate them, mind you, i'm more ambivalent about them than anything - but there was something about this book (or perhaps it was the feature on dyeing your own easter eggs that came after it?) that piqued my fancy. i thought, in honour of the spring that's arriving everywhere except for toronto, it'd be lovely to have an avian-themed mosaic to accompany today's post.
and a ring, just because i thought it was too awesome not to include. hey - it could fit, if it were a nature theme. and it could be.
what sorts of things are you looking forward to this mid-march weekend?
