The Quirkiest Person You Shall Ever Encounter.
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.
I just got offered a Research Assistant job without even applying by the fantastic woman who runs the free clinic I’m doing my internship at. AND she’s gonna mention me in her published research.
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.
“Migraine Assessment in College Students Aged 18 to 23: A Student-Based Population Study at SJCME”
I got my schedule for next semester! I got all of the classes I wanted/needed. Finishing my Biology/Pre-med Bachelor degree with:
*Physics II (required) on campus
*Senior Project II (required) on campus
*Independent Study Medical Terminology (voluntary) on campus
*Biology Internship (voluntary—hopefully at a Prosthetic Lab or Rehab Center) off campus
*Online Philosophy of Gender
It’s Version 6.0 “Body Works: A 3D Journey through the Human Body” from 1997. I just bought it only to realize it’s not compatible with my computer… and I’m too lazy to return it. It’s only Windows 95 or 3.1x compatible. It has rotating 3D images, videos, animation, audio, search capabilities, 1,500+ topics, and a multimedia classroom.
Sad day… someone enjoy it for me?!
On a weird note, I risked life and limb (well, just limb actually) and saved a little snapping turtle who was gonna get run over on my campus…. than I kinda dropped him into the pond when I tripped. Oops…
AND NOW I’M GETTING A MIGRAINE.
Research, Diagnosis and Treatment of:
Twin-to-Twin Transfusion/Transfer Syndrome
Pulmonary Valve Stenosis?
I keep following all of these medical student blogs and all of you have GPAs above 3.25+. My cGPA is only a measly 2.73… My freshman year sucked grade-wise and I failed one class sophomore, receiving a mix of As and Bs with some peppered in Cs ever since. I have this last year, my final year, my Senior year, to go and then that’s it. I can’t afford tuition anywhere right now, especially my private Catholic undergrad college.
I’m literally going to have to try and get all As in every class this year, which I’m taking as many classes on campus PLUS online courses to make up credits without overloading but enough to make sure I graduate on time, plus I’m joining Pre-professionals club and catching up on volunteering. Not only that but after I miraculously graduate I need to spend that year paying off as many bills as possible, meaning getting a 2nd job (which I need in the medical field for experience) and plug in even more medical volunteering… AND I NEED TO TAKE THE MCAT AND DO WELL AND APPLY TO MEDICAL SCHOOLS AND WRITE ESSAYS AND GO TO INTERVIEWS. I have no idea where any of this money is coming from!
Oh my God… What if nobody accepts me? Nobody is going to accept me! What do I do if no med school accepts me? OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD!!!!…………………………………………….
I’m so screwed…and that was my freak out sesh.
Putting my scientific college knowledge to use to make a special treat for an upcoming girls’ night.
Skittles vodka mhmmmmmm. So far the group I’m gonna hang out with has voted on orange (1st), red (2nd) and green (3rd) for flavors. I definitely wanna make at least 2 of 3 of those. My questions, however, are these:
*What’s the cheapest/best tasting brand of vodka to use?
*What method works best for flavor harnessing?
*And which flavor of skittle usually works the best?
