Shady's back, tell a friend

Over the past two months I've accrued 17,682 air miles, visited 6 major US cities in 6 different states, driven 2247 miles, read about 1500 pages of required reading, interviewed 23 times, lost multiple games of bingo in Mesquite, partied like it was a 1999 Halloween in Boston, turned another year older, nearly finished 1/4 of my degree, and yes, saw Twilight. It's been a pretty full couple of months.

Today is a good day to blog because it marks the day I make a big decision, and big decision days should probably be remembered. After having survived the recruiting season, I'm now tasked with choosing the internship that will hopefully become my job for at least the next who knows how many years. Kind of crazy to think of how much could potentially hinge on this day. No pressure or anything...

In other non-school/job related news, I somehow miraculously escaped illness this Thanksgiving, which breaks the pattern of my life for the past 5 years or so. This is truly a feat considering the fact that I even willingly exposed myself to the germ pool that was my sick niece and nephews all weekend. I'm kind of proud of my little immune system, and I also now feel justified in avoiding the flu-shot this season.

Lastly, I heart Redbox. Really, is there anything better than being able to drive over to your local McD's to pick up a sappy romcom at any hour of the night? The $15 in charges I racked up this weekend tell me there is not.

Glad she's back, folks.

Do you still feel justified in avoiding that shot? maybe your trusty immune system only covers Utah.
