Ultimate Blog Party - Happening at 5 Minutes for Mom

Ultimate Blog Party 2010
Wow, have you heard of this great event that  started last April 9?  Well  I have but between juggling my time recuperating from an illness and catching up with school requirements , I haven't had the chance to post regularly on my blog and totally forgot to do this post. And before I knew it, the party has started! Well it is not yet too late :) and better late than completely missing out the fun!  So if you haven't joined yet, hurry and visit 5 Minutes for Mom.

So about me, I am a graduate student in Clinical-Community Psychology at the University of Alaska.  I am married but have no kids yet.  Hopefully we could start a family by next year. I started blogging to document my experiences as a full-time grad student. I work in the university as a Teaching Assistant.  My husband is planning to attend business grad school also this Fall 2010 at UAF. We are best of friends! We  both love reading and watching movies, and live a simple lifestyle. I am interested in using the creative arts in therapy - I especially love dancing! 

I am also interested to do product reviews and more giveaways in the future. I received my first two books for review recently and I'm excited to do my review posts in the coming days (hopefully I can get all my school requirements done by then).

I believe in the importance of being in "balance" and my continuous quest in life is to be healthy - in mind, body and spirit :)

Now for the Ultimate Blog Party, I want to win the Grand Prize Toshiba Satellite L505D-ES5025!
Besides the grand prize, my top five are... 
US 101, Still Blonde After All These Years!
