Happy Halloween!

I didn't dress up this year because my entire weekend was spent at school, so sadly, I missed all the festivities! I even had a nurse costume ready. I suppose it will wait till next year.

A few years ago I blogged about the origins of Halloween, which can be found here for those interested in reading.

As a child, I remember "ranking" my candy after a long night of trick-or-treating. I would dump my entire candy sack out in my room and segregate the contents based on my own personal ranking system (the top 5 were the first to be eaten). Mine were:

1. Snickers
2. Twix
3. Milky Way
4. 3 Musketeers
5. M&Ms (any kind)

The worst offenders to me were:

1. Dots (do they still have those??)
2. Mounds
3. Almond Joy (which I now found yummy)
4. Smarties
5. Laffy Taffy

Anyways, Happy Halloween! May it be a safe and enjoyable one for all.

Dancing Disappointment

Dear Dancing with the Stars Voters,

What the heck were you thinking? Bristol needs to go, and Audrina should have stayed. So wrong. So sad. I'm rooting for Jennifer and Derek, how about you guys?

Mini Life Update

I am never on here anymore! So sad. :( I assure you once grad school is over, this blog will once again come to life and become more exciting. Since I've been away for so long, I guess I'll post a mini-recap of what I was up to during the summer and early Fall.

*Finished my first year of grad school and started my master's thesis, which is on bone health promotion in adolescent girls. I'm super excited to see the final results.

*Wrote a chapter in a book that will soon be published. My chapter is on pesticides in drinking water. Researching the topic was so eye-opening. If I have learned anything from it, it would be to buy a water filter of some sort that uses granular activated carbon to purify water (such as a Brita filter). I'll blog about the book when it's released for those interested in viewing it.

*Celebrated another birthday with LOTS of cake...yum. There's never such a thing as too much cake, especially on a birthday, right?

*Saw Muse in concert in Los Angeles. They...were...AMAZING! Enough said.

*Saw Le Reve and The Lion King musical. Below is a picture from the the former-- such a visually stunning show.

*Went on some mini-weekend vacations to combat the stressful effects of grad school, ha.
