How am I supposed to describe a 3-year ongoing research project in less than 700 characters? I mean, I appreciate the extra characters to explain how it’s special to me, but just 700 for the full description? I could write a paper on this (and I actually am right now).
I’m actually pretty excited (partially because it’s above minimum wage!). I’m working as a secretary for an inflatables rental company part-time, so it’s just 5 hours a day, Monday through Friday. It’s a pretty sweet deal!
I have heard that my boss is a misogynist, however (like a really bad one), so hopefully that’s not true or I can avoid situations that would bring that attitude like the plague.
Oh, by the way: I finished my Junior year of college.
So that’s a thing.
Now it’s summer? Which right now means:
Celebrating my 21st birthday with Bethany tomorrow (my birthday is actually the 14th, but she has graciously decided to share since I will be in Shawnee by then)
Seeing my little sister graduate high school
Working somewhere in Shawnee (hopefully NOT the movie theatre)
Dylan visiting Shawnee!!!1
Applying to medical schools
Learning to sew and obnoxious amounts of crafting
Going to Scotland(!!!) for 10 days with some of my favorite people
Reading ALL the books (thanks again for the recs!)
Making a super high score on the MCAT because it’ll be my second time and practice makes perfect, right?
A possible family trip to Florida
Actually breathing and relaxing for the first time in what feels like a very long time
It’ll be good. Right now, I’m not really looking forward to heading home (saying goodbye to the majority of the people I like and the city I adore is tough), but it’ll be good. I haven’t had a real break since January due to the MCAT, so this will be nice.
Reached that point in finals studying where my academic stress is bleeding over into other parts of my life and everything is negative and stressful.
Awesome. At least my worst exam will be over this time tomorrow? I don’t know if I’d be able to function/maintain any friendships if I had to go longer than that.
