Congrats to my friend Claire for making it to state for History Day in Minnesota. I'm so proud of Claire whom I have known for her entire life!

Many of you don't know this but it was my quest to go to nationals for History Day in 8th grade that caused me to set up my Astronaut Abby twitter account and well that started my online outreach, caused my trip to KSC to see my first and last shuttle launch and where I met Luca Parmitano and the rest is history.

A side note: I wanted to go to Nationals for History Day because I wanted to go to D.C. And visit the National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution. I didn't win and it took 6 years of traveling everywhere else to finally make it to D.C. to see the museum.

I ran out of clean, warm, winter socks and didn't feel like doing laundry, so I just made new ones.

Because I'm terrible at sizing things I made them too big...oh well time to layer!
