Ziggy's Piggies Back in Action

After what feels like a very long hiatus, the ZigPig team will be back in action just in time for your holiday shopping. Stay tuned for updates on new listings and coupon codes.

Here is a brief look at what we have been up to over the past year:

This past year has been one for the books. Right before we went on our break, I had  picked up a few night classes for my graduate school applications. I was also working at my current job as a medical assistant in a super busy pediatric office. In April, the application cycle for every Physician Assistant program in the country was finally available, and thus began 4 intense months of essays and interviews. I had been preparing myself for this moment for four years, and it totally paid off because I accepted a seat at the Rutger's RWJ School of Health Related Professions. This August I'm going back to school to pursue my dream of becoming a Physician Assistant.

You last left me in my first year of my doctoral program and you'd be surprised the difference a year makes--it has been out of the frying pan and into the fire. I'm currently at a much more intensive externship at a college counseling center, balancing an increased course load, and getting my very own study built from scratch (sidenote - real scientist!). In addition to school I also took another big step: I moved in with my boyfriend! That was definitely one of the best decisions I've made in my life (and bringing home a new kitten certainly added to our happiness). It's been some year so far, and I can't imagine what's to come.
