Girl Ninja flew out of Seattle Friday night to attend a friend’s baby shower in San Diego. To say she was excited about leaving the cold and wet snow in Seattle, for the warm sea breezes of Diego, would be an understatement. I wasn’t expecting to hear from her much as I knew she’d be […]

Applying to a private school was something I said I would never do. I grew up in public school (until college) and saw value in the education and experience I had.
