just kidding. =P  the above photos are actually of the western united states as seen through the window of my airline flight and the lenses of my nokia lumia smartphone.  looks a lot like mars, though.  here’re some pics that appear more earth-like from the same flight (the river is the mississippi in new orleans):

a couple weeks ago, my college sent me to the international reading association’s annual conference in new orleans.  i only attended for a day, but i had a lot of fun. =)  the young adult literature luncheon was particularly good, as author matt de la pena delivered a TEDtalk-worthy speech that was moving, humorous, and inspiring:

the rest of the day, i spent exploring the exhibits, listening to exhibit speakers, collecting free stuff, and… uh… getting my photo taken with the mascots:
