Hey everyone, Did anyone miss me??! Did you even realize I was away?! I'm back at home after my two weeks of interviews and joy trips! I think this must be the longest period of time away from SDN. I'm going to have to get caught up on threads in the next few days. Speaking of...I can't believe some of the new threads that have evolved here and there...I'm going to have to put my 2 cents in. Anyways, so my interviews went well, but my trips were just strange yet exciting. On one of my flights, a big gentleman wanted to exhange his first class seat for two coach seats, and so he asked me (of all people...strange), and I was more than happy to oblige. So, I"m seated in first class next to someone who looks like Brad Pitt (no joke). We had some light conversation throughout the flight. When we arrived in NY, I wasn't able to find my friends who were supposed to pick me up. This is one of those "Scooby" moments coming up....I came across my mysterious Brad Pitt look alike and he offered me a ride. I thought over it for a moment and thought of all the dangers involved but in the end I gave in b/c the guy had offered to carry a disgruntled baby for a female passenger earlier (my female intuition told me I'd be safe), so he took me to his car...or rather his limousine!!! I got to ride in a limousine for the first time in my 22 yrs of living! It was the best!! I had the time of my life, and the guy must have thought I was nuts the way I was acting like a 7 yr old. I sat in a seat facing the opposite way, and wow, it's so awesome seeing everything from the other side in a car! Anyways, so he drove me to my friends' apt and let me off. Two days later I was shopping in NY and as I'm browsing the clothing racks, I get pushed and practically lifted off my feet by this guy running for the entrance/exit doors. Yep, I got pushed down and injured by a shoplifter in the Big Apple!! I can't believe my luck. I was in some pain b/c my ankle was twisted, and the first person to actually come and help me was get this....the Mr. Brad Pitt look-a-like! Of all places...!!!! This dude must have been my guardian angel in NY! So, I go to the hospital and get my ankle taken care of and then head off to catch a plane for my interviews. At all of my interviews, the interviewers gave me the first class treatment...they were all so concerned about my comfort. When they asked about my injury and I told them how it came about, they became mother/father figures! So, here's a helpful hint...Go break a leg before an interview....I'm not just being literal here!!! I've got to go and cram for an Immunology final tomorrow. It's going to be a LOOONNNGGGG night. But, I can't wait to come back here tomorrow and add my input to all the new and interesting threads that have appeared since my "exodus" from SDN! It's good to be back, and congrats to those of you who have gotten accepted these past 2 weeks!
