I’m gonna try to breathe, accept change, and go with the flow. I may be taking more than a year off now, for financial reasons. It looks like (cross my fingers) I’m going to get that Home Care Aid job for the elderly that I was hoping to get, allowing me time to get hands-on experience dealing with people who need my help, continue working part-time at my customer service job, volunteer 2-4x month at the clinic and maintain my research assistant title, and study for my mcats. I will only be applying to my #1 medical school. If needed, if I do not get accepted right away, I will take another 6-8 months to apply to more medical schools.
Other than my medical career path, this next year will be exciting! It looks like I may be travelling throughout Maine, Boston, and Chicago. I will travel by train for the first time. I will watch multiple friends get married (and may even have a bachelorette party involving white water rafting and/or skydiving), and I will force myself to take time to actually have a social life.
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.
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.
Out of my grand scheme of life, gifts and good days are itty bitty. However, with the completion of my first week of Senior year I have gained what I think will be a pretty good footing in my classes, bought some really cute items at work that were on sale so I didn’t have to go broke, went to my doctor who provided me with various forms of allergy meds so as to hopefully finally irradicate or in the very least weaken my crazy allergies, and gotten a car wash = a happy looking vehicle. So, I’m enjoying the small things right now so that I don’t cause myself to over-think everything per usual and drive myself insane. OH! And my parents and I decided last night (because my mom got a GREAT deal on it) to get me a little white digital SLR. So I’m happy right now! Boom.
Yeah…I just haven’t seen her in 6 months because she decided vacationing in Florida meant that her and her boyfriend should buy a place down there for the Winter, even though they’ve only been dating for a little while… Nice, but I know that 1) I will never get to go see this place/visit/use it 2) she hates spending moolah 3) there goes my tuition…
But you know. I love her.
I love how all of the Ugg-wearing, mini-short sporting, bleach blonde, orange tinted “ladies” and the name-brand low-jeans wearing “gentlemen” on campus complain about how much their cars suck. Or how much money sucks. YET they all drive like lunatics with blasting music and clearly no car payments (because most sane poor students do not have money to blow on brand new vehicles). And YET STILL they drive an Audi, Lexus, Beamer, SUV, Caddy, or sports car… I don’t know how much longer I can take these people before I get expelled for judo chopping someone in the throat…
Yup. Somethin’ like that.
I can’t wait for:
1) a social life
2) ability to work more = more $$ for bills, savings, etc.
3) no more homework/studying
Not even kidding. I seriously can not wait for the 2nd week of May.
My schedule for next semester was PERFECT. Class mon-thurs 10a-1145a, plus 2 online classes. Gave me time to do hw and work TO PAY MY TUITION.
Went to go sign up for 3 on-campus classes (senior seminar, feminist philosophy, and digital photography) and 2 online classes (ethics of human nature and nutrition) only to be told:
a) ethics of human nature is no longer an equivalent to the on-campus required human nature and ethics course offered at my college
b) taking 2 online courses in one semester is not allowed…
The responses from the offices today:
1) “Well, those aren’t required for your major.”
2) “Oh, that’s not allowed.”
3) “We’ll talk later when you’re not in such a rush.”
Today can suck my dick.
So, I already have a dark blue, mini-skirted one-piece Juicy Couture bathing suit and a light royal blue Ralph Lauren mesh tankini, but I really wanted a bikini as well so I could wear a different bathing suit when I felt like it during the summer. So today I bought two. I was a little hesitant, but I like them both and I think I’ll get a lot of use out of all of them. I got a royal blue Body Glove bikini and a black ABS bikini. I think I’m done spending money (except for bills, clearly) forever now.
Well, I bought 2. Both are Calvin Klein. One is red and the other, black. They’re super classy and really comfortable. I have 2 pairs of shoes I have to choose from. One is a 3 1/2 inch grey Anne Klein point-toe pump. I love them with the black dress. The other, an olive green closed-toe 5 inch BCBG stiletto. These look fantastic with the black dress and lovely with the red. If I wear the black dress, I’ll throw on a pearl necklace and my lime green leather watch from Ireland. If I wear the red dress, I’ll throw on my mum’s silver bracelet. Either way I’ll probably wear sparkly earrings and put my hair in a curly pony-tail. I never dress up; LEGITIMATELY dress up, so I’m kinda stoked. It sucks not being a bridesmaid as was the original plan, but there was no way I could afford it or take the time off for all the events. So, this will do. Count down to October! Now I just have to find a hot date…!
…I’m a sucker for weddings…even if I don’t support the idea most of the time.
I legitimately (in my opinion) have stuff to bitch about I think… I mean, I have severe tuition/bill issues right now, I’m trying to balance classes, studying, homework, interning, work, and some semblance of a social life, my friends are freaking the fuck out about every thing, there was a recent death in the family, my allergies have been driving me crazy, the weather is bipolar, I am beginning to gain sleep debt, I’ve been getting loads of tension-band and hormonal headaches, I can’t pay attention worth shit and the semester ends in a week and a half… and the list goes on…
I think I need to win the lottery and spend the rest of the year in Hawaii or some place exotic where I don’t need 25 shots to prevent some random illness, and where I’ll be rich enough to pay someone to do homework for me… but ANYWAYS.
