I hope that you've had a good weekend. It's strangely sunny in Portland, and I did my poetry homework outside on the estate garden lawns. I think that I'll come back to Lewis & Clark when I graduate just to lie on the lawn once in a while.
Now for an update on school. Friends from my poetry class and I are applying for a SAAB grant, or a grant from the Student Academic Affairs Board. Students apply for grants through SAAB to do research, creative arts projects, attend conferences, bring speakers to campus, and make other awesome opportunities happen. My classmates and I were nominated to attend a Sweet Briar's Writer's Conference in Virginia, so we're applying for funding to attend the workshop over spring break. Here are some photos of the application process:
