Full Throttle

It's Wednesday, and I'm not exactly sure how it became Wednesday. Yes, I know Wednesday is the day after Tuesday, but it seems my days have been packed leaving the house slightly before 7 am and returning between 6p and 10p. Last night I finally slept, which was definitely needed, but has left me a handful of tasks to complete. Today looks like this: work, haircut, chiropractor, Earthquakes (soccer) exhibition game, pack and get ready for C'Ville/DC.

I've rented a car, yay! At least that is done. Early this week I was contacted with the name of my student host on whose couch I will crash for 2 days. Part of me thought I should forgo the couch surfing and rent a hotel, but seeing I don't plan to spend much time sleeping, the hotel would likely be a waste of funds. Additionally, this way I may partake in TNDC (Thursday Night Drinking Club), a movie night with current students and a Carnival celebration sponsored by the Latin America club. Not to mention, I still have class visits, breakfast with the NAWMBA, a speech by the dean, various presentations and dinner with alum at Boar's Head Inn. It's going to be a busy 2 days! After C'Ville, I celebrate with Mack in DC until I return on Monday.

Now I need to figure out what I'm going to pack! Attire needed: Casual, business casual, business and going out (for DC). Hmmmm ...

wow!! looks like you are on a roll. i;v always been fascinated by uva with its surroundings, first coffee and interesting students and professors. The TNDC seems to have gathered quite a reputation for itself too. Looks like you are going to have a great weekend. Looking forward to details once you are back...

Ha! Looks like we're both going through the packing debacle. My stuff did not end up fitting in my carryon. I had to go one size up *eep*

Have fun this weekend!

At this point I am a little stressed out and a bit envious of you guys -who are already Dardenites. After all the dings this season, hope I can make it to Darden-just need to be positive! I am just getting set for my interview this Fri. Wish me luck !:)
