We went to Chicago this weekend to visit D Flo! By we I mean Scott, Kyle, and myself. Scott gives a full account of the adventure if you want to read, but I will say that Body Worlds 2 was cool as hell. And of course Scott was as giddy as a kid in a candy shop…or a PhD anatomy student in a room full of plasticized cadavers…whichever.

Seeing D Flo and Ezzie was super nice, and it was very fun to have Kyle along as well. I did, however, forget to clean Kyle’s car today, like I was meaning to. Kyle! Come to Maria’s tomorrow for empanadas! I will then clean your car!

In other news, I have 4 scholarship deadlines fast approaching and am rather worn out. However, I will be going to New York in 2 weeks to visit Carleton, Matt, and hopefully Ian and Yale. Yay for visits!


Another scholarship application in the mail! Woo! On a roll! Or somethin! Granted, I have 3 more scholarships to apply for in April, so I will not cease being busy, but it does feel good to mark the big red “high importance” to-do items off my list.

I deserve a bit of celebration for these small accomplishments, yes? Perhaps chocolate? Perhaps pie?

Also, Mariah, I’m still pondering over your interview questions. Ponder ponder!
