Life at South Pole is going well, with little over 10 weeks away from deploying>>>>. We are so excited to see light blue on the horizon which becomes further spread across the sky and brighter and each day getting closer to sunrise. The sun will be rising on Sept. 21.
Sorry that I haven’t been as consistent with writing this past season. Perhaps the novelty is wearing off to some degree, I suppose there are only so many ways and times I can write the sun is going down and the sun is coming up! Don’t get me wrong, I love Antarctica and would winter again at the McMurdo Base if a job is offered. So far offers haven’t been made for next winter, they are still busy working on summer hiring right now. October we should hear something.
If not, I will have to make a decision on what to do.... I'm leaning towards school; it is very scary and foreign to me right now. Where to attend school and where to go? Hummm, I'm torn between a 15 mo vocational schooling, like X-ray tech. I would also love to study horticulture. I do love dirt and growing! LOL
I have looked briefly into U of M Western in Dillon, tuition seems reasonable. I need to do more research. Decisions decisions! ahhhh... any advice would be well taken from you graduates that I admire and envy for getting a degree many years ago... or recently!
This week I have been making earrings and note cards for our Art Show, Farmers Market, and open mic night this Sunday Aug 31.... I do want to share with you a “Pole-Al” announcement I just sent out about the Farmers Market. This event should be lots of fun.
Dinner time… see everything revolves around the sun, moon and food!
I hope this finds you well…
All the best,
