It felt odd to spend the Labour Day weekend at home, having spent the previous three on the coast, helping the OFKAR move. Her decision to stay in situ over the summer is now proving to be a strategic move, however, judging by how she has managed to advance her academic career over those four months.
Not to brag or anything, but we are getting all Tiger Mama about our smarty-pants offspring, here at Casa del Zombie. A few days after nailing the Graduate Record Exam (96th percentile in verbal, 71st percentile in math) needed for acceptance into graduate school next year, she managed to land a Research Assistance position in a cognitive psychology research lab. Plus she completed a couple of courses over the summer.
She sure doesn't get it from me. Come to think of it, she doesn't get it from the Spousal Unit either. There's a lot to be said for hybrid vigour.
