I got a ton of responses to my post about applying to UT, and I haven't been on my laptop since then, so just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone for your input and encouragement. Y'all are the bees' knees. I am going to Austin for Thanksgiving. I plan on staying through Monday so I can meet with people in the transfer and non traditional student departments at the school, as well as someone at the office of the degree program I'm interested in. Yay!
Also, here's a photo of my lazy kitchen assistant from last night. Mortimer, if you're going to state at me while I make an omelet, the least you could do is break some eggs for me. SHEESH, DO I HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING AROUND HERE?!
