As for my life, I've been having a relaxing month or so, which is great. Applications were in by the end of October. Finished up classes before Christmas. Had a great time with all my fam for the holidays. So now I'm just having a bit of fun, prepping for my upcoming interviews, watching shows, hanging out with siblings &co. Wrapping up my last online class (developmental psychology).

For Christmas, I got P a rock climbing pass so we went several times. Here I am trying my hand at some inverted bouldering:

Been trying to get out snowshoeing as much as I can get buddies to go with me. Went once with P and R (we barely managed to summit Kearsage North by the time we needed to turn back in order to return to the car before dark):

...and another time with B and A (this time, not so fortunate; it was too foggy to make our way to the top safely, but it was still a fun trip):

So far I've been invited to interview at four programs, but two of them are scheduled on the same day, so I had to turn down one of the interviews. I'm interviewing in Denver, DC, and here. So a nice spread. I'm still waiting to hear back from the fifth school, which is also here.

So, I have to say life is overall going pretty well for this one.


I am on Dollhouse now. That show plays with your mind fantastically.

So I recently concluded Season 7 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer after having watched alllll the prior seasons as well. A lot of ups and downs in that series.

I have so many things sort of brewing in my head from it. Thoughts about healthy vs destructive relationships. What it means to be a strong woman. I don't know if I'll have a better post (or multiple posts) later, but I do want to say there's so much good stuff in that show, besides just entertaining storytelling. I would recommend it for anyone, but especially in regards to the show's treatment of a strong female lead.

Joss, Gellar, and company do not disappoint.

(it is tough not to have more episodes to look forward to though)
