So Long for Now

I'm just about ready for my trip to the Land of Enchantment. I have one thing left to do, and that is to put all my slides on a CD to take along with me. Well, I also have another thing to do. I need to pack for my trip, and settle a few things around the house. But otherwise, I'm essentially all set to go.

I'm kind of excited about the interview. I'm sure that the day of, I will be terrified out of my wits, but right now I'm kind of looking forward to it. I have all these pretty clothes that I get to wear (most of them hand-me-downs from my advisor's secretary) that I don't usually wear otherwise. My knee is still a bit purple, but it shouldn't be noticeable because it's not too swollen anymore. And I'm going to get to meet all these new people, and learn about their work. I always enjoy talking to people.

I'm going to see a friend of mine who recently graduated and who now works at Sandia, along with his wife, on Thursday night. Because I know how much they miss the Illinois winters, I bought them a University of Illinois snow globe! I also bought them a little Illinois t-shirt because they're expecting a baby in July. The snow globe is very nice and a little out of my price range, but I managed to talk some people in the NA posse into going in on the gifts with me. I think my friends will get a kick out of the gifts.

Wish me luck, people, and I'll see you on Monday!
