    If you do buy a blender, I would've recommend the ninja. I bought the one with both the large blender and individual cups that are interchangeable. We love it and use it constantly.

  10. Will my pregnancy hurt my chances at an externship?
    You'd postpone the baby before school? School will always be there, but a baby is a miracle! I'm sorry you're feeling so ill. First trimester is hard but it (almost always) gets much better by 12-13...
