That is great to hear Cory! I am glad that you got the grant!!

I just finalized my internship with Manzanar, and I am going!! I will be there from June 18th-Dec. 18th. I am definitely hopin to see you down there at some point and also to fish with you as well. :D

I was also just told by my professors that I can use this internship for college credit. Which means as a possible elective to finish my masters degree OR I can use this to write my masters thesis. I have to meet with the program coordinator at APU and finalize it! Hopefully it all works out.

But that is great for you. I look forward to seeing you at Manzanar and possibly seeing your film someday.
