ruskiegirl... I left my home country when I was 9 also.. isn't this weird??  Please dont' forget to email your PS to me. 

Swifty...The second PS you read was mine.  Thank you, you gave great advice and thank you for your praise for saying that mine was the best one you have read.

Can't you have any friends or neighbors get in your house and have them send it to you?
Just a thought.
I spent a total of six weeks in Berkeley...I don't really have anyone like that.

Lexie,

I sent you a personal message with my PS.  Feel free to still send me yours for review when you are finished with it.

Hi Ruskiegirl,

I'd like to congratulate you on getting into Boalt!  I graduated from Berkeley last May, and absolutely loved it there!  I'm sure you'll love it too. =) Let me know if you have any questions about Berkeley, food, fun things to do, etc. 
 
I am also thinking about writing somewhere on the lines of immigration and ethnic identity.  If it's not too weird or inconvenient (since we don't know each other), could I also take a look at your ps?  I've read all the ones in the Montauk book, but would like to read a more recent ps. Plus, it seems that your topic is similar to what I'm thinking about.  Thanks!

Forgive me for my ignorance, but what's pm? 



PM = private message.  To the left, and just under the "number of posts" is a little grey Icon that has IM written onit.  That stands for instant message, and is the same as a PM.
And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people need not apply" So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why. He said "You look like a fine outstanding young man, I think you'll do.  So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that. Huh! Me workin' for you!"Sign, sign, everywhere a sign..
