Today I graduated undergraduate college with a Bachelor of Science in Biology/Pre-medicine. The past 4 years have been a little crazy, but fantastic. Today was rainy and muggy and chilly, but we cranked out a pretty awesome (and freaking long) grad ceremony and a pretty yummy bbq. Ended today seeing The Great Gatsby at the new Smitty’s cinema where I had a pretty fantastic drink too! Good day.
with the end of today, I officially have 24 days until I get my bachelors degree in bio/pre-med, ending with about a 3.4 gpa. Am I excited? Try ecstatic and simultaneously panicked!
I have a 3 hour Physics lab and then a 2 1/2 hour belated mid-term exam for the same class. My brain will be mush by the end of today.
I’m literally so excited to graduate in 39 days! But all my professors are trying to cram in so much work now. I have 2 essays, an exam, 2 lab reports, a poster, and various other quizzes and homework assignments due in the next 2 weeks. Time to see what I’m actually academically made of…
And then I get to get a second job, pay tuition debt for my year off, study and take the MCAT like a maniac, apply to medical schools, do some traveling, and go to some pretty snazzy weddings.
Be jealous, bitches.
Professors I don’t even know were talking about my senior research project today. Boom.
First: I got a Research Assistant Job. Started this week and kicked butt!
Second: I got fantastic medical school recommendations from some of my favorite professors, and even some who weren’t my favorite. Not to mention, a lot of wise advice.
Third: I actually understood Physics this week and know I aced all of my quizzes in all of my classes. ALSO, I finished homework super early.
Fourth: Sent out a notice on campus about my own student population research and I’ve gotten quite a few responsive volunteers!
Last: Had a good night at work after an ACTUAL shift, no 4-hour crap.
Good day. Good week. I’m happy.
MEANING I GET TO DO MY OWN RESEARCH NEXT SEMESTER.
Wtf I’m actually a scientist.
I’m doing a 20 minute presentation tomorrow night for my senior research project proposal! I still need to force myself not to speed talk, but I’m gonna try and imagine myself presenting at grand rounds 8 years from now.
