[ - ] When choosing K, prestige and academics over easy commute, warmth, and sibling policy, right? Sounds like a no brainier when I type this, but we have 3 DCs that are not SS so the allure of having all three in one place is there. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I have a small, slightly raised mole on my arm. it recently dried up and fell off. and then overnight it regenerated itself (crazy!). It's now drying up again and looks like it's going to fall off. I know that moles sometimes do fall off, but to fall off, regrow, and then fall off again the space of a couple of weeks makes me wonder it's worth going to the derm. Any thoughts? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It hurt her a little in that by MS years she was with friends that were not as mature as she was mentally so she was a little frustrated by that. But it did give her confidence in her class work.
