Weekend getaway..

Posted on March 9th, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

These last couple weeks I have been keeping busy.  I completed my Fafsa and mailed it to Aberdeen.  I’m hoping in the next few weeks I’ll have the official word on if I’ll recieve enough student aid to attend this fall.  Actually it’s more like i’m crossing my fingers and thinking  “please please please let […]

It’s Official!

Posted on February 17th, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

Well it’s official.  I received my Acceptance Letter from the University of Aberdeen by email today!!  “I am pleased to inform you that your application for admission as a postgraduate student to the University of Aberdeen was approved on behalf of the Senate today.”  *Jumping for joy* I have to try not to get too […]

Hello All!

I hope everyone is doing well! I’ve been very busy the last few weeks with work and just life in general, but I wanted to get on here and say hello.   Did anyone else enjoy the Super Bowl?  It was a great game and I was very excited for the Packers, which is funny because […]

Waiting Game…

Posted on January 26th, 2011 by Caitlin Collom

The worst part in applying for grad school is the waiting.  Which is made even worse, because I have to wait twice as long applying for a grad school overseas.  When I mailed my application to Scotland the US Postal Service stated it would take 6-10 days and it cost me $14!  If a few […]

Hello All!

Hello All! Happy Martin Luther King Day!  In remembrance I wanted to post some of my favorite quotes of this remarkable man.  “People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they have not communicated with each other.” […]

Greetings from Idaho!

I’ll be the first to admit that this is my first blog, so any suggestions would be appreciated!  I suppose this first post should be an introductory into who I am.  I kept trying to think of ways to make this intro more interesting, but I believe a traditional and over used cheesy version will […]

For starters…

Posted on August 29th, 2008 by Juan Ortiz-Apuy

Some 28 years ago, in the mist of much anxiety and joy, I was born in the capital city of a small country named Costa Rica. On that day, I was named Juan because, according to my father, of my close resemblance to my grandpa. A few years after this day, my family decided to […]
