jervis bay in winter is still better than canberra in summer!

No hot water=no shower, no shower=dip in frigid ocean, dip in figid ocean=jo's hair looks like this:

defying stereotypes

Academics are notoriously un-fit and nerdy. They spend days locked in libraries researching, writing, and editing. Here's a taste of the GSIAers, defying fat/ugly stereotypes left and right :)

Adam the rock star
Cody the cool
Haida the stylish
Hood the leisure king
Chen the celebrity

the capital city has no coast or int'l airport--but the weekend getaway is good

as pictures from the fabulous GSIA costal getaway come in from our diligent photographers the choicest ones will make their way to y'all. sadly my camera stayed at the very bottom of my HUGE ass weekend bag and so i am relying on the kindness (and timeliness) of the rest of the crew to send them along. That water should make those of you who aren't here long for your much anticipated vacations to visit me! and of course, it makes us all long for a location better than canberra :)

allens lost the frisbee and jake, oh-so-baywatch-esque went searching
kjersti enjoyed the view, the sun, and a coffee

here's to mental health

So we're planning a weekend getaway to the coast and i couldn't be more excited. We don't get vacations anymore so this is a much needed break. However, in order to ensure the serenity of my weekend i have two weeks worth of reading to do before we go. Yes, two weeks worth, because i have three large papers coming due soon too and there will be researching galore that needs to get done upon arriving back too....

we've rented a beach house, have 13 beds, 16 people and a whole lot of fun/relaxing to get done. link below is the house we're at...for the overly curious, of course :)
