Flash Forward

I've been antsy recently, and I'll tell you why. There is a forum online that my mother reads. To help you understand, I will give you an analogy. Online forum: my mom:: crack: addict. She loves to read it every night after work and to refresh when possible. The worst part is that this forum is called, a professional forum for those either wanting to get into the health field (prospective professional school kids) or those already in it (current students or actual working people in the field). Basically the prospective professional school kids use it to freak each other out about getting into school. And it's been working because they've been freaking my mom out.

Since my interview early last month, everyone's been eagerly awaiting their letters of acceptance. Apparently two weeks ago, acceptance letters have already started trickling out. So for the past two weeks, my mom has been on my last nerve about whether I've heard back yet. At her insistence, I told her I had sent an email last Friday to the admissions office (which of course I didn't).

Believe it or not, yesterday I received an email through my phone from the University of Maryland Baltimore. It was thanking me for my interest in the school, which usually sets up for a rejection when...BAM. It was honoring me for being ACCEPTED TO THE CLASS OF 2015!

So now not only does my mom believe that the admissions people forgot about me until I emailed them inquiring about my status (which remember I did not), she will now forever gloat about how she was right about my future and blah blah blah. God I hate that look on her face -_-.

I guess the point of the post is that you are now looking at a future pharmacist from the University of Maryland Baltimore Class of 2015!

happy weekend (:

This is the weekend before Valentine's Day. Any special plans? I know there are lots of people who celebrate the loving day before and after the 14th to avoid the crowds and the notoriously bad service and inflated prices. As for me, I will be making a romantic (or not so romantic) dinner for two on the day of and then celebrating at Brasserie Beck later in the week.

Hope you guys have a wonderful day with that someone special or a joyous celebration with all your single friends (:

Internet Woes.

My mom is the handy "man" around the house. My dad knows as much as a koala bear when it comes to anything with technology. My mom only knows slightly more. Thus, I was not surprised that after several days of getting almost NO internet service, I went downstairs to find that my mom had rerouted the wireless router to our phone router.

Insert long sigh.

So expect more frequent posts now that I can get online again.

Happy Weekend!

The weather is freezing this weekend, although it is nothing compared to the chill Chicago is currently experiencing. Regardless, I am refusing to venture outside unless absolutely necessary - and yes outside includes any place other than underneath the covers of my bed.

The Shore.

My friend told me yesterday to get a hobby. How sad is that? I guess I seem really bored all the time.

I only know how to do a short list of things with my free time: search the internet for blogs, watch shows/movies, read books, and listen to music. I have added considerably to the number of blogs I follow, I have not found any books worth reading recently, and music is so blah right now. So I decided to give in and watch the complete first season of the Jersey Shore. (Please don't tell me that this does not count as picking up a hobby.)

...And I'm not going to lie. It's kinda amazing so far - although this may be too soon to judge since I am just finishing up episode 3.

Suppose I will keep you posted as to how I end up liking the whole season and that will determine whether I will venture forth in the series. We shall see.

New Directions?

I met up with one of my friends today after months of no contact. We had an all girls day, starting with lunch and ending with a Whole Foods run (with a slew of other activities/errands in between). But what I found really interesting was that she said I should change my blog to be more food orientated. Apparently my food experiences in the DMV are exciting for her, a more recent important from the Midwest.

I guess I am considering this option. What do you think?
