Just wanted to give a shout-out today to all the seniors who are anxiously awaiting those early admission decisions which are starting to trickle in this week. If you’re looking for ways to a) distract you from the impending news, b) celebrate getting in, c) console yourself over a defer or rejection, or d) just avoid working on those regular decision apps, check out some of my picks for weekend diversions.

1. Get a head-start on your Oscar pool research.  You could spend an entire weekend in the theater checking out these movies currently creating Oscar buzz: Rachel Getting Married, Slumdog Millionaire, Frost/Nixon, and Milk.

2. Cross some items off your holiday shopping list without even leaving your house.  Check out these great online gift guides with ideas sure to please everyone.

For the Moms & Grandmas & Aunts: Marie Claire’s Best Gifts For Her

For A Good Deal: 200 Gifts for $20 or Less

For You! Seventeen’s Top 150+ Gifts for Teens

3. Work out your anxieties or frustrations on a holiday run!  Find local 5K and 10K races on  Or if you’re in the Los Angeles area, come run the 31st Annual Santa Monica-Venice Christmas Run with me tomorrow!

Have a great weekend!
