Rewind & Review #62


~I've joined my university's team at The Odyssey. I'll be blogging there hopefully every week. (You can check my About Me page for the link to my page there. I also think I'm going to start linking to my articles in my Rewind & Review posts, so see below for my first two posts.)
~I went to the VMFA again, this time with my best friend. It was a quiet afternoon of art. We saw the 360-degree photography exhibition and wandered through the 19th-20th century French art, the modern art, and the American art galleries.
~The best friend also introduced me to the best pie shop in Richmond. I take pie very seriously, so it was a wonderful discovery. I had a slice of sour cream and blueberry that was to die for.
~I started my summer biology course. I don't have to post on any forums or interact with my classmates, which is great. I'm a bit concerned about the quizzes, though, and there are two labs a week which seem to take longer than I'm used to with my homework. 
~We don't think my Little Love (a.k.a. Sunny, a.k.a. Fluffhead, a.k.a. our dog) is going to make it through the year, possibly the summer. He's showing early signs of kidney problems and he isn't eating regularly like he should. :(

No book haul this time. Sorry, y'all, I wasn't feeling up to it.
