Part-Time Job

Hey all, this isn't specifically UW related so delete if necessary.

I work at an Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing facility in Shoreline and a part-time evenings/weekend job may be opening up.  It mainly entails receptionist work, tours, marketing, data-entry, and basically anything someone throws at you.  After more experience, more responsibility may be given. 

Basic rate would be starting at $9.75 an hour with job experience (experience doesn't have to be in the same field).

If you are interested in more information as I don't want to post too much here...
my email address is ktcradd@u.washington.edu  


Study abroad

After the loads of money I spent for my quarter in Cuba I decided not to repeat that mistake, mainly for the high costs associated with the program.
I will graduate next year (probably), and I would like to spend anywhere between 10 to 16 weeks in China learning Mandarin during my summer after graduation. Anybody has any info on some good programs? I looked at the ipe website and all they have are links to expensive organization arranging the trip for you. 
I've found something that is not too exorbitant price wise: http://www.worldlinkedu.com/chinese_language.html Anybody knows anything about those guys?

Also I won't know until June if I got accepted in my grad school of choice, so ticket plane wise I was wondering what is cheaper: Seattle - Beijing (or Shanghai) and then Beijing - Paris or would Seattle Beijing two way trip and then Seattle Paris?

Thanks in advance dear uw community ;)
