Now broadcasting from Columbia

Well it’s official, Stephanie and I are now homeowners. We closed on the house Monday and haven’t slowed down since. We’ve been buying furniture, painting, and getting the utilities etc set up. We just got cable TV and Internet around noon (central time) today. You don’t appreciate high speed Internet access until you’ve gone without it for a while. 🙂

Tuesday we are headed to Arkansas for a few days. We’re not flying out of the Columbia airport this time, we already learned that lesson. We’re renting a car and driving to the St. Louis airport, and flying from there to Little Rock. After a couple days there, we’re headed back to Knoxville with Stephanie’s mom to get ready for the wedding.

Columbia, Missouri News

Some Columbia news to report. I got an assistantship at SISLT. So I’ll have a job when a get to Columbia, which is very good.

Stephanie and I are flying to Columbia next week to look at houses. Wish us luck.

Change is in the air

Well change is in the air, actually it has been for quite some time, I just couldn’t talk about it until now. Now that the announcement has been made at both UT and UM that Dr. Doug Raber is going to Missouri, I can chime in with my own news.

Back in October of last year Doug told me he was applying for a position at the University of Missouri – Columbia’s School of Information Sciences and Learning Technologies. He also asked if I was interested in going to Missouri. It took a while to get my ducks in a row, but I’ve applied to the Ph.D program there.

It will be a few weeks before I hear anything but if all goes well I’m headed to Columbia for the fall semester. I’ll be posting more about this as events unfold but I just wanted to let the cat out of the bag.
