They are. That is why people are snatching them up. A box of twinkies sold for $60 on Ebay today.

I prefer zingers. The red ones. Actually what i really love are those Little Debbie Nutty Butties. They had better never stopped making them or it might get ugly.

I'm ill. I either have a cold or the flu.

It's been a few weeks since my flu shot. Coincidence? I think not.

You know that show where they did an experiment and found that people have trouble identifying people of other races. I think that is so true. I have two coworkers and other than being black and female we look nothing alike yet white people are always getting us mixed up. One lady is tall, dark skin, early 20s and super short hair. I'm short, in my 30s, light skin and longer hair. The third is dark, about my height but at least 30 pounds heavier than I am and probably 50 pounds heavier than the tall lady. Yet somehow we get called eachother's names often. Very annoying. Plus the other two have distinct New orleans accents and i don't. And I have noticed this mistake of mixing us up almost never comes blacks or other minorities. It is to the point that sometimes I don't bother to correct people. I just say "ok" and move it along. Now I will say I have a friend who is white and has a bunch of sisters and I get them confused because they are so many and they look alike to me. But I either ask or don't call a name. At least they are related and they even admit they resemble.

Edit - I'd like to add if I was being constantly confused with a relative or someone who actually favored me I would be okay with it. I understand confusing Jessica Simpson with Britney Spears. But if you can't tell Charlize Theron from Natalie Portman you need to go to the eye doctor.

Of course everyone is different, but I have never contracted the flu from getting the flu shot. On the other hand, when I didn't get a flu shot, I got it so bad one year, it turned into pneumonia and I ended up in the hospital.

I think there is some truth to this.maybe its because I grew up in an all black area but I get white people.mixed up all the time unless I spend a lot of time with that particular person. Otherwise I confuse one white person with another a lot.

Now after thinking about it more I think that is just one aspect of it. One of my bosses calls just about everyone by the wrong name regardless of race.These are people who have been there like 7 + years. He calls my coworker Michelle, Melissa. He introduces her to people as Melissa. Sometimes he sends emails using names that don't belong to anyone that works there and we have to figure out who he is talking about.

There is definitely truth to this. The two demographics I see the least (old white people and white males) I tend to get mixed up unless there is something distinct about their faces. But then again, I'm awful with remembering people's names and if someone was in a minority, I'd use their race as an easy thing to recall who is who. If not a minority I'd use something else distinctive like short hair, so if there were two people with short hair I could get them mixed up, even if their faces were vastly different. I tend to use age, race and hair as my 'markers' and sometimes glasses.

Some friends are having a bon fire on the beach. I really don't feel like going but I was personally invited. I came up with an excuse about it being cold but the guy shot that down by pointing out we'd all be around a fire. Oh, well. I guess I'll make the best of it.

My boss is making me work during the office/lab Thanksgiving party next week. I mean how evil can a person get? It's completely unecessary because everything I'll be doing can be done next week. Everyone's going except for me. Ughhh, one more month and it'll all be over. It's going to be a long 4 weeks at this job that I absolutely hate.

I think I'll have another job lined up that starts in February. I rather just focus on school until then. I think I may apply to grad school or med school. Idk. I bought an MCAT study book last night.

I want a boyfriend. Or at least someone to flirt with.

I think the ppl who know Walmart & Target workers personally should not participate in Black Friday madness on Thanksgiving day.

I'm still waiting to hear back from 1 of the 3 schools I applied to for spring admission. I got into two but I would much rather go to the third one since its cheaper and its more conveniently located.

If (hopefully....when) I get this job I'm thinking about whether it would be wise to defer until the fall. One of the reasons I applied for spring was because I was expecting to already be working for a few months. If I were to get a job now or while I'm already in school, I'd have to get acclimated to both environments at the same time. That isn't ideal. I also didn't want to be out of school for a year.

But I think it would be better to defer since the science classes I need to take should be taken in sequence. Or I can just take electives in the spring, take summer school and hit the bricks in the fall. I just don't want to be out of school and out of work at the same time.

I've also been thinking about my career goals and I do think I'm on a good path. I remember when I was considering doing a masters in public health and I have now realized, after some actual experience in healthcare, that I still want/need to do that. MD/MPH programs are what I'm aiming for. Yep, that feels right.

You are so awesome.

I've put off applying to anything because the thought of it makes me want to throw up.
Also the recommendation letters are the biggest turn off, every professor at my school as the reputation of being horrible at writing recommendation letters, as in they procrastinate doing it, so you have to bug the hell out of them

I also want one from my boss, but she's very....slack also, I mean she's busy, and would put it off also.

It's very annoying.
I also don't like the feels of rejection so I don't want to apply. Which is why I didn't want to apply for colleges in high school either, I just wanted to got community college because they accept everyone. But then my father made me. I already missed my date to apply to a big time university that is 5 seconds from my house.
The whole thing makes me want to vomit.

Good luck cocot!

How'd you do your recommendation letters btw?
Actually anyone answer.

My school also sucks because our advisers are professors, which means they don't really give af, about your life after college they just want to tell you what classes to take and kick you out of their office. (AND THEY DON'T CARE IF THE CLASSES HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING YOU LIKE HOW MANY PLANT CLASSES HAVE I TAKEN WHEN I CARE NOTHING OF PLANTS) I wanted to write that on my exit survey but I had to hand it to my adviser LOL, so I didn't want him to read it. Because I was gonna rip him a new one.

Because I was gonna rip him a new one.
I don't plan on applying to graduate school until 2014 so I have not gone through that part yet, but I intend on being more proactive in building relationships with my professors in the next two years so that asking for LOR would be a little less stressful.

The only time I've had to worry about recommendation letters was when I need them to apply for study abroad. I wasn't even close to the professors I asked. When I came to them to ask for a LOR I provided them with my personal statement, reminded them who I was (I was shocked they remembered and liked me.lol) and told them when I needed them. They were really accommodating.

For grad school it would be a little different though because a really good letter requires more commitment (time wise) and needs to be more personal. The letter writer needs to be able to make a compelling case on your behalf and speak about your academic credibility. If you don't have personal connections to your potential letter writers, you still have a chance at getting a decent letter. Professors and advisors expect to be asked for LOR. They probably have templates or something.

When asking for one I would approach them in person, tell them why you'd like them to write your letter (suck up a bit, remind them who you are if it's been a while), let them know what you're applying for, provide/offer them with your personal statement, and let them know when your app is due. If they agree to do it, you may have to stay on top of them for time. That's why it's best to ask well before you need it.

Oh and thanks You're awesome too!
