After a painfully slow day at work, the first thing I am greeted by in my email is my supplement application for pharmacy school. I was worried I wouldn’t get this in time to submit it before school starts, so that was exciting. And the 4th thing I saw was that one of my references has been submitted, also exciting.
The second thing was the I am now I featured publisher for the Village Green Network. I am SO excited about this, but I will post more about that on Friday after I figure everything out.
