I'm in Indy for training. Got here last night at 10pm CST (Indy is EST
but I'm CST). Slept fine, got about 7 hours sleep.
Training today was fascinating! Financial aid is complicated stuff.
And I love it so far.
Building on my previous "what's in my desk" post, here's another

town to go with me.
Point is--this trip isn't centered around food. I'm alone, but I don't
need food as my companion any more.
