Mountains and Valleys

Hey all!  I think we've hit what the previous Cohort was referring to when they said it would be a "busy" semester.  This program has been true to its marketing and shaping up to be a very intense 18-months.  This is the first time I haven't work since I was 12 and it's totally necessary...and shocking.  As per usual, the highs are high and the lows are quickly becoming normal and less panicky...so that's good.  And really the lows are not lows. They're just patches of having to focus HARD on the coolest stuff out there on sustainable business, boo-hoo, I know.

There has been some fun as well, last weekend was the Fort Collins Sustainability Fair.  The GSSE program has a booth and it was a great time!  Much larger than last year was the word on the street.  They even had free bike valet parking!  Good thing I wore my pearls. Kudos to the Sustainable Living Association for putting this on.

Kat and Greg selling knowledge!

We needed to compete for love with our neighbor's dog so we borrowed a puppy for a bit.  5 months and 50 pounds...
In other news, we've had two students drop from the program for different reasons.  22 of us remain and we're a pretty cohesive bunch.  Ranging from former corporates to sci-fi actors, it's an eclectic mix.  Looking forward to being assigned a venture to work towards in November.   For now, it's researching small plot irrigation for rural farmers in India.  Smells of a former Peace Corps project...
