I would like to start off by apologizing for being absent from this blog this past week. It's finals week (last week and this upcoming week), so I have been going crazy getting presentations ready and studying. Fortunately, I will be done in a week! I still have a lot to do in the meantime, though. I will try to post as much as I can within the next week, but please forgive me if I am unable to do so as often as I would like.
