Emily is now employed as a Financial Analyst at the Principal Financial Group in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The Principal administers pension, 401(k), and other financial plans for a number of employers. Therefore, they undertake the number-crunching and record-keeping so that their client employers understand the needs to support their plans.
How about that - a job in her field (Mathematics).

In 2007, "Parental Move & Store" went into "move" mode to take most of Emily's worldly possessions to North Carolina. (Those of you with offspring may appreciate that when the children are young, we are "taxi" or "transit" service, but as they go into college and young adulthood, we spend more time moving their possessions into and out of dormitories and apartments, and storing what doesn't fit there.)

Seven students shared a portion of this house. Emily's room was in the peak on the right in the photo.
The Famous Bath Abbey

The students visited Stonehenge.
The students also visited Avebury, which is similar in concept and age to Stonehenge, but a town has been built around it, and so you can get more "in touch" with history than you can at Stonehenge (which is now fenced off from the tourists).
One of her classes was a study of Jane Austen. Here is her house.
As a Classics major, Emily was of course excited by the Roman Baths in Bath.
And, she made a Spring Break trip to Venice and Rome, and in Rome got to see plenty of Roman ruins!
Read her blog, and view photos (Volume 1, Volume 2). On the photos sites, note that each small picture (thumbnail) is a door to an individual album, each of which has a number of photos. So, you can look at hundreds of photos there!

This doesn't have anything to do with anything else, but I think my cat's cute, so I'll put up pictures like these.
