So according to Leisy, the pictures below are a bit confusing, and I agree, but I kind of liked taylor's post. I guess that according to Leisy, the Buffalo could be an American Bison, and the buffalo wings throw you off. But it is in fact a buffalo and according to Taylor, buffalo wings were invented in buffalo. I actually hate buffalo wings, I hate spicy things, and I hate meat with bones. I also don't think there are really very many buffalo in buffalo. The building however is the Buffalo city hall or something like that. So that is kind of cool.
We are very aware that Buffalo is cold in the winter (that is the first thing anyone says when we tell them where we are headed) and it snows a lot in the winter, but I am okay with that. I lived in Rexburg for two winters and then Estonia and Latvija for two winters. I am pretty sure I can handle buffalo. And winter weather doesn't actually get me down, I quite like it. I even like to run in the cold and the snow. I just hope this baby likes it too, because it will be coming with me. So we are headed off to New York in August sometime, we really have no idea when exactly. But we do know that we will be there for four years. Taylor starts grad school the 25th of August, he starts law school the next year, and then the last two years are a mix of both. We don't really understand how it works exactly, but we will find out soon I am sure. It's the combined degree MUP-JD. (Masters in Urban Planning and a Juris Doctorate).
I am almost done with my masters degree, I am finished with classes in April and then I have a thesis to write and defend. I will probably not finish that until December, I will enroll in thesis credits in the fall and then write and research for this summer and those months while we are in Buffalo. Our child will probably be slightly neglected for the first 6 months of its life, but it'll have a really cool mom with a masters degree!
Anyway, hooray for moving away. Not that we don't like it here in Orem and Provo, it's quite nice actually, but we are ready to get away and experience some change. I am also hoping to find some russians in Buffalo and make new friends. My russian is getting a little rusty and I am hoping new Russian friends will help me out.
