Hope it leads to even more exciting things in the future. Its been a pleasure to work with you and have you as my desk buddy . . . . and that I’ve already missed!!

I can’t wait to hear all about your staying in Amsterdam. I will be an exchange student at UVA next year, so your blog will be very useful for me:) Good luck, and have a lot of fun there.
