Asking, for a friend….

Today I went to an interview with a university program – I answered the four or five questions the interviewer had for me, and then asked an additional 45 minutes of him, trying to eek out exactly what the parameters of the program are and how I can be most successful in maintaining the delicate […]

Collaborating and Deciphering

  I’m going to share a fun fact. Every time i write here, I have to search for my password. Every. Time. I change it periodically, but I don’t know why I bother, since my brain’s concocted a brilliant way to ensure I preview my posts so they’re a little more coherent. I digress. I […]

The Power of Words

The receptionist at the OBGYN office I’d used before answered the phone. “Hey! I’m a former patient. During prenatal care, does this office test for herpes?” I’m not very good with gentle let-down. She stumbled, caught up with the question, talked through the answer and we were on our merry way. I was quite impressed. […]
