I can't even believe it, I have officially completed my first semester of grad school! It was tough, especially the length! At SU we were on 3 10-week quarters; at Pratt we are on 2 15-week semesters, and the difference is unbelievable!

Anyway, will be back in SLC tomorrow morning!

Pound for Pound Challenge

I was enjoying The Biggest Loser Season Finale tonight when I was absolutely floored by a statistic Alison Sweeney dropped: she announced that 1 in 6 Americans are now facing hunger. 1 in 6?!?! It blows my mind that a television show that features 250-476 pound contestants dropping 100+ pounds is one of the most popular shows on prime time television in a country where 1 in 6 people is hungry.

The show is sponsoring the Pound for Pound challenge where anyone can pledge to lose X amount of pounds and the show will match those pounds with a pound of food for a local food bank. I pledged and recommend you do the same. Its free and only requires you to enter your pledge.
