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…
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.
I forgot how much work it takes to even apply. That’s what I get for having the same job for years. I literally went through JobsinME and applied/inquired to 8 jobs, resume, references, cover letter, and all. I applied to a lab assistant job at IDEXX, a medical office Coder job, a few medical secretary and administrative assistant jobs, and a couple Home Aide jobs.
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.
I was going to pick “Be more social” but since I’m actually planning on going to a New Years party, I’m marking that as accomplished.
I would say “Consciously try to be healthier” but I would focus on “try” and never actually do it.
Maybe I’ll try “Procrastinate less” or “Be spontaneous once a week/month” or…
Yup. No idea.
I don’t care how much homework I have. I’m taking a nap after my 8a class before I do my pile of assignments. I’m working all weekend so if I don’t catch a nap now, I won’t get one until sometime next week… blehh.
I can’t wait until 3p.
Customers have been super sketchy, rude, and “In A Hurry” since school let out/Summer weather has improved. The store is starting to flood with tourists who literally stay until the manager announces that the store is closed and they need to leave… ugh, and the children who URINATE in the dressing rooms… and the customers who break stuff and go “I’m not buying that”… and the customers who want everything checked because “It was on the Clearance rack”… and some of my coworkers have been extremely high maintenance and/or heinous as of late… My next day off is Wednesday and I’ve been working since this past Wednesday… So:
Bring it on, bitches.
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.
