She's Got Book Learnin'
Something I should mention about my college girlfriends.  They are all extremely smart and accomplished.  Perfect example, today there is an article in the NY Times which references two new studies about children with bad behavior and academic outcomes.  One of the studies is being published in the journal Developmental Psychology.  Guess who one of the authors is?  Yup my good friend Holly!  I already knew she was smart when I met her in college and she was the youngest Freshman there.  Later on I got to observe her teach college statistics and she even made it so I could understand.  She kind of made fun of this article as being important in a nerdy sense.  But I think it is good to be reminded that your friends are real grownups with real jobs and they rock them.  Lolly, I am so proud.
