Well, it weighs less than a duck!

So this summer I got the ah-mazing opportunity to travel to Northern Ireland for two weeks.  I went as part of a group of 29ish people, 9 of whom were students like myself.  We got to do this because of the WV Frank and Jane Gabor Folklife Center at Fairmont State.  Before we left, the students took this class to focus on completing the research project portion of the trip.  Long story short– Deb Hemler, a geologist at FSU was talking about rocks and the geography of Ireland and she asked us to describe the rocks.

“Well, it weighs less than a duck.”

Thus TeamDuck was born.  I bought LemonjelloOtis at our Target and, much like the Travelocity gnome,  started to document the Northern Ireland trip with him.  I especially like the idea of using LemonjelloOtis in the pictures because I personally never know what to do in pictures so I usually have a horrifically awful facial expression or something similar.

Back to le blog…while this is going to be about my life in general the first few posts will mainly focus on my experiences across the pond.  Hopefully I will be able to cross the pond again with the Honours Program at FSU on their Paris trip.  Keep an eye out for the duck and I…we’re going places 😉
