Halfway to the Paper Anniversary

Adria and I celebrated our 6-month anniversary on the 10th. These past six months have gone by fast. We celebrated by having dinner at a local Thai Restaurant on Friday and by having some carrot cake with our lunch on Saturday.

I also turned 25. Adria, among other things, gave me a some new sunglasses, tickets to a Salem-Keizer Volcanoes game, and a baseball card of the ugliest baseball player ever. We celebrated on Tuesday because I didn't have any finals that day. Adria had to work in the morning, so I went to work with her. On Tuesday mornings the senior citizens that attend the center have a meeting. They had a Father's Day potluck and played some games this week. The event was even written up in the Portland Chinese Times (or so they say, it is all in Chinese) and even had a picture of Adria and I. Adria is less excited about this than I am, as it isn't the first time that she has been in the Portland Chinese Times. It seems at times that Adria has a picture in either the Portland Chinese Times or the Asian Reporter every other week or so.

Adria took the afternoon off and we both went to the Portland Zoo to celebrate. We had a nice time, although it was kind of sad to see some of the animals because they looked so unhappy to be living in a zoo. Here are some of the pictures that we took of some of the happier animals (click on the thumbnails for a larger view):

Also, I finished up my finals on Thursday. I have my department graduation on Saturday, and then on Sunday is the university graduation ceremony. It feels good to finally be finished with my degree.

I also found out this week that after my two week orientation period in Washington D.C., that I will be spending the next 12 weeks in Seattle for some additional training. So it looks like we won't actually get up to Alaska until October. On the bright side, hopefully we will be able to attend some Mariner games while we are up there.

In other news, my fantasy baseball team is above .500 for the first time all year.
