Wow, it's been a long time since I blogged.
During the interim time, I've left BCBSNC and worked at Thomson Dialog for 10 months, then returned back to BCBSNC. Now I'm working in the CDW doing "user experience design". Love it, love my dept and coworkers, love the benefits and family atmosphere, love the 6 mile commute!
I've moved out of The Trails and into a condo in Carrboro. Huge lifestyle change - bought scooters, walk the dog all the time, am more accessible to friends and family, etc.
Am studying to take the GRE, and might apply to the Doctoral program at SILS. Yikes!
