If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

That didn't go as planned

It was snowy. It was cold. My daughter forgot her hat, gloves, and scarf on one outing, but she was not deterred. They only accept 6% of the applicants, but my daughter has decided to apply to Columbia as one of her “reach” schools - those that you would really like to attend but aren’t likely to gain admission. I have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I want her to have what she wants. On the other hand, I really don’t want her to go to a school so far away in a city so much bigger than she’s used to in a place which is so liberal in its thinking.

There were lots of things she didn’t like about New York City, but she said that the campus felt a lot different. Showing her truly nerdy side, she said it was like walking into Hogwarts. :)


In better news, I had a lot of time to get reacquainted with my WRX. With all the travel I’ve been doing, I’ve had very little time to drive my own car. I get a rental for all of the commuting so I don’t have to put so many miles on the WRX. Over the past week I was reminded just how fast and nimble this little hot hatch can be. Wowza. It was fun!

I’m ramping up for another two-week stint in Houston. I’m hoping the weather is nice so next weekend will be for flying. If it takes a turn for the worse, I’ll just drive home.
