Day 281: Interview Day

6 Oct

Today I had my first Dental School interview! I interviewed at University of the Pacific, Arthur Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. Whenever we go to the City, the trip is usually about an hour and half. This morning it took me two and half hours! It was raining and the morning traffic was horendous once I hit the Bay Area.

Today was the first time since the change in Administration that I wore a suit. I was comfortable and relaxed and ready to interview. There were only six of us today and we were the first interview day! I can’t believe I got an interview on the first day! They interview the best candidates early in the process.

I was the oldest of the interviewees. Two of us had gone to Stanford, two from USC, one from SF State, and the other from UoP, Stockton. The morning started with an Admissions Overview, where we learned more about the school and a little about what to expect for the day. Next was my faculty interview. It went very well. It was more of a conversation about the school, my experience, and some advice for the future.

I am sold on the school. Not to mention by my final year they’ll be moving to a new state of the art builing in Downtown! Now I have to wait until December 1st to know if I’ve been admitted.

Day 148: Cheaters

26 May

We feel like we need to come clean and admit that we cheated for the last week. We were on vacation, but didn’t want to announce to everyone that we were going to be gone. We took pics the week prior to leaving and uploaded pictures for the week. We literally just got home and don’t feel like loading the pics and editing them – in the next 20 minutes or so. So, we’re posting an iPhone pic taken this morning. We will be posting pics – a week delayed – and so the cheating will continue. Sorry. :/

We were sad to leave, and hope we cam return to Hawaii soon.

Day 95: New Bloom

3 Apr

We’ve had this succulent for three years and its never bloomed, but now it finally has flowers. Shoot, we didn’t even knew it was going to have flowers. We moved it last year, so it must like this part of the yard better than where it was before.

Day 87: Chug!

26 Mar

We bought what look like “small” bottles of soda, but in actuality, they’re the size of a normal can of soda. I don’t drink much soda and neither does Jen. So, as I was drinking it, I was surprised to see how easy it would be to drink the entire bottle. After I finished the bottle I was still thirsty.

No wonder my mother-in-law chugs two cans of soda at a time. ;) Water quenches my thirst much better than soda.

Day 79: Picture of a Painting

18 Mar

Did you ever realize how difficult it is to take a picture of a painting? Well, we figured that out tonight. After numerous pictures, this is the best we could do:

We painted this picture to go above our headboard. It turned out better than expected, considering we have no idea how to paint and we used some really cheap paint brushes.

Day 56: Birthday!

23 Feb

Temoc turned 31 today! We took part of the day off to celebrate/relax – considering he has school tonight. Eventually we’ll be able to go somewhere for his birthday, but until then, we’re stuck staying close to home (Kauai, please? Especially since it might snow in Sacramento this weekend?).

Before we left the house, he couldn’t find his phone. See that rectangular object in his pocket? Yeah, that’s his phone… That’s my adorable husband – already becoming forgetful. :)

Merry Christmas Eve

24 Dec

A few more pics taken with our fancy camera…

These were taken last night, without the flash:

And a few from today… Taken by Cuauhtemoc’s dad.
