So much for updating regularly... It was a nice thought, anyway.

Things have been going fine in my corner of the world. The Illinois AER conference that I mentioned in my last entry was good. Dalton did very well navigating around the hotel, the keynote speeches and breakout sessions were informative and interesting, (some more than others), and it was really fun to be able to spend some time with many of my classmates just hanging out.

School continues to go well. I had a midterm last Wednesday, which I think went relatively well. I can think of one part that I messed up on, but my philosophy is that you are allowed one total mess-up on a test. It shouldn't kill me, in any event. I think that I have another test next week, (this week is spring break), but I need to check on that to be sure. I am in the midst of applying to the center in Connecticut where I hope to do my internship next spring. There was a bit of a fiasco with that, but I think it has all been sorted as of now.

Speaking of spring break, I just got back to DeKalb yesterday evening after being in Chicago since Friday afternoon. I had a seminar to attend that was put on by the Illinois NFB on Saturday, and then afterwords, I went and visited some of my cousins who are in the area. It was so nice to be able to spend the past few days with them. I had a lot of fun, majorly enjoyed myself, and their kids are adorable! As for the rest of break, I'm not entirely positive what is in the cards. I do have some work that needs to get done, but as part of spring break is the word "break", I should probably take some time for myself. I don't do that nearly often enough.

I'm not entirely sure what else to update on, so I think I will end this and post. I do notice that I have been getting a lot of spam comments on my entries lately. Has anyone else experienced this? I am not a fan! I also apologize for not keeping up with Friends' page lately. If there is anything important that I should be aware of, feel free to comment or contact me and let me know. Regardless, I still do care. Life has this habbit of getting in the way. I'm sure many if not all of you can understand.

Take care all, more when it happens.

Hey Liz. Glad to hear things are going well. I have been getting an occasional spam comment but not a whole lot. Anyway, nothing major in 2011 so far I don't think! We'll chat soon. Have a spec-fuck-tacular day!

[b]NATO is taking over command of military operations in Libya from coalition forces, world media reported Sunday.[/b]

The UN Security Council imposed the no-fly zone over Libya on March 17, along with ordering "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from Muammar Gaddafi's attacks on rebel-held towns.

The 28 NATO ambassadors met on Sunday to decide on further military plans in Libya.

The United States transfers command for a no-fly zone over Libya to NATO, while coalition forces will continue to protect civilian population from attacks by Gaddafi forces.

The military operation in Libya, codenamed Odyssey Dawn, has been conducted so far jointly by 13 states, including the United States, Britain and France.

NATO members decided on Thursday to assume responsibility for the enforcement of a no-fly zone in Libya, but could not agree on taking full command of all military operations in the country.

Meanwhile, leaders of the 27 European Union states on Thursday issued a statement saying the EU stood ready to assist in building a new Libya "in cooperation with the United Nations, the Arab League, the African Union and others."
