Visited States

| | Comments (1)

My grades for two classes are due today, so I've been kind of lying low for a bit. I've still got five papers to grade, and then I'll need to go hand in the sheets personally. Syracuse University is still living in the 90s with respect to grade reporting. Grades for my third class are due Friday, but I submit those online. So I welcome the opportunity to post something that takes very little time.

I've done the Visited States thing before, but it got lost in one of the moves this blog has undergone, so I'm using Matthew's posting of his as an occasion to do it again. It's nice to see that, even though he's hopelessly outdistanced me in terms of numbers, I've been to six of the twelve states he's never been to.

My Visited Countries post from way back is still up, but its map has long stopped loading up properly, so I've used this new site to update it with a working map.

So, I have been absent from the blog for a very long time. I haven't looked back at the archives, but my best guess is that the last time I posted was in November or so. I do intend to start posting again, so I figured I should briefly reintroduce myself for those who have started reading since the last time I posted. Plus, I have some news.

First, the reintroduction. I'm a postdoctoral researcher in the hard sciences at a major U.S. research university. Additionally, I'm a Christian, with a generally Reformed perspective on theology, for those who know what that means. So, my interests include science, theology, issues relating to intelligent design, current events, and so on.

Next, the news: I'm delighted to say that my wife and I just had our first baby, a daughter, several weeks ago. We saw God's answer to prayer many times throughout the pregnancy and the delivery and in the last several weeks, and we are very thankful.
