I'm happy to report that grades have just rolled in, and I passed my first grad school course with a B+! Yay! It was a little challenging at points (the final paper kicked my ass, officially) but I think my next course will be a bit more my speed.
I also had one of the most incredible weekends of my life: I went to the real Bedford Falls with Sara. I'm hesitant to even blog about it, since it seems like an undiscovered gem. But I will, in time, once I can do it justice. Just know that if you love It's A Wonderful Life as much as I do, you'll fall all over yourself to get to this event next year!
