- I have only 49 workdays left, which is a big milestone.
- I've gotten a few additional pieces of info from Duke -- nothing super useful, but some interesting details nonetheless. (Example: the 2011 American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) national conference is going to be in Las Vegas, and students are encouraged to attend -- to the tune of Duke canceling our classes for that week and partially covering our travel expenses. Nice.)
- I'm running the Tar Heel Ten Miler this coming Saturday with 4 other people from my office, which should be lots of fun.
- Liz will (hopefully) find out about her job on Friday, which is good timing, considering we're heading out to (probably) commit to our new apartment complex on Saturday after the race. Since I won't really have much income, knowing what her salary will be is a crucial piece of the apartment-hunting puzzle.
- I'm still hunting for outside scholarship applications -- the pickings are incredibly slim, but I just found one that actually seems tailor-made for me: bilingual students entering the healthcare field. The essay should be pretty easy; the only catch will be if they'll accept the certificate of fluency I have from the Dutch government (because I'm definitely not paying $90 to take a second fluency test here in the States). We shall see... it's worth a try, anyway.
- Liz defends her thesis two weeks from today. Needless to say, the stress level in this apartment right now is pretty much through the roof.
That's pretty much all I've got as far as a Life Update so far. Stuff should start rolling in from Duke pretty soon as far as required textbooks, instruments, immunizations (I have to get varicella titers drawn, bah), and other such nonsense, and financial info should start coming in about six more weeks, around the end of May. I'm sure I'll have more to talk about once that all starts happening.
