My New Best Friend, Expedia

Those of you who have been asking more details about my interviews, today is your lucky day. I've been giving Expedia quite the workout and here's why:

Wednesday March 25 Brandeis University (Boston)
Friday April 3 University of Texas Medical School (Houston)
Monday April 6 University of Utah Health Sciences Center (Salt Lake City)
Thursday April 9 Northwestern University Medical School (Chicago)
Thursday April 16-Friday April 17 University of Arkansas (Little Rock)
Monday April 20 University of Cincinnati College of Medicine

Only waiting to hear back from two more!

And for family or anyone else who's just curious, I'll post more details about flights and such later. For now, I'm late for a lunch date with Expedia. Many more plans to finalize!

Interviews, Layouts and Mohawks

I have a 4th interview set up in mid-April. This one is for an online program, but I'll travel to Little Rock, AR for the interview. Waiting to hear from 4 more schools....

Here is another Jen Hall "The Write Stuff" LO of 2008 in Review:



And one I did using the Mosaic technique from the Feb/March issue of Scrapbooks Etc:


And finally, Hubby's new hair-do:

Yes, I realize the lighting is HORRIBLE!! Seems like everyone is getting in touch with their manual mode lately, which definitely makes me want to revisit my notes from high school photography class! Ah, if only there were more hours in a day!

Schoolin' & Scrappin'

It's about time for some updates, so here's the latest grad school news: So far I've received three invitations to interview at Brandeis University March 25, Northwestern University Med School April 9, and University of Utah April 6. Boston University is not extending an invitation...I had a sort of "pop-quiz" interview on the phone, and was totally unprepared, and apparently unimpressive. Harumph! I'm still waiting to hear back from five others (now that the missing-documents-mystery has been solved), hopefully in the next week or so.

All my time has been devoted to these applications lately, so no time for any new LO's. I did these months ago, and I'm just now getting around to uploading them. These three are from Jen Hall's Octoberfest.





And these are from her "The Write Stuff" Class:

I've Been Tagged

I've been photo tagged by Melissa.

The assignment is:
Go to the 6th album of your photos and find the 6th photo.
Share that photo and tell a little bit about it.
Tag six people and ask them to do the same.

I have many "sub-albums" so, I kept going to the 6th folder in each, until I reached:


This is a picture of my nephew, last February. He is such a little rock star! He loves singing, dancing, and playing instruments, especially the drums!!

Instead of tagging 6 more people, I'm interested to see who actually reads this blog. I've just recently started it, so I'm curious who my visitors are...if you're reading this, leave me a comment and say hi!

And...I have another pretty new background...what do you think? So glad I stumbled on that site! It's provided plenty of wasted time for me!
