    Haha I just said it in good humor. I know it's equally exciting/challenging for everyone starting grad school, no matter where they are coming from. Thanks and good luck to you too.

    Oh I'm sorry that I read that the wrong way, reading humor through text is always difficult for me! I do wish you the best of luck as you move! Hopefully everything is coming together for you as you prepare! :)

    It really is. I'm much more excited than nervous to be making such a big move.

Can smart phones (galaxy4) play fm radio with a receiver?

    Some have built in FM receivers, but the Galaxy4 does not. You could probably buy a universal receiver and use it with your phone though.

    I don't think they make those for the galaxy. I've seem them for the iphone, and they suck.

    Ha! I am still struggiling to get myself off the couch and away from the TV to focus on my reading. I just need a kick in the arse to jump start me. It still doesn't feel quite real yet. Even though I got my parking permit a few days ago.

Why is going to the dentist the worst ever? I HATE the feeling of the scraping and polishing. Thank goodness I haven't had a cavity in years.

    I think you're referring to ahlatsiawa's comment. He said that rural dentists in his home country do use those tools...I responded that I was happy I lived in Canada.

Forcing myself to sit down on a Sunday to read... so hard to do. I have 37 days til my first assignment is due... and I have another 4 books to read, besides the one I am working on.

    You're doing a great job. If you have the interest and the means, a speed reading course might come in handy. I wish I had taken one before going back to school.

I was looking at pictures of my apartment and just spent the last 10 minutes trying to figure out what that weird, long, rectangular contraption on one of the bedroom walls was. Turns out it's a heater. I hope I won't have many of these noob moments in the US. I would be so embarrassed.
