Secondaries make me sad.

I’m taking the MCAT tomorrow and I’m actually feeling really good about it?!?

I am so close to turning in this med school application but things just keep turning up that I have not been told about I HAVE WANTED THIS FOR OVER A DECADE WHY DID NO ONE EXPLAIN THIS TO ME

A sad PSA:

Dear everyone,

I am probably never ever going to like your cat. It’s not because of anything your cat has done (it could be the most beautiful, perfect cat on earth and it wouldn’t matter), it’s just that the fact that it exists makes me (quite literally) physically ill. I don’t want to touch your cat or even breathe the air around it. Please do not take this as an offense against your cat; I promise that it probably doesn’t really care how I feel about it either way. I will be more than happy to look at photos of your cat, but you don’t need to get angry if I am averse to having quality time with the cat or where the cat lives. It’s just something I have to do to look out for myself.

So please don’t ask me if I want to meet or hold your cat. I don’t.

My allergies and I thank you.

Back to the grind!

I’m home from Scotland! These past 10 days have been truly amazing, and I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to explore such an incredible place with so many dear friends. This trip couldn’t have been timed more perfectly; I’m back home ready to get back to work!

The current goals remain:

I can’t believe June is nearly over! It’s time to make the most of what’s left of this summer.

So I got the Warby Parker home try-on kit today, which means I get to choose a new pair of glasses! PUMPED. I really love Warby Parker as a company, but I haven’t ever really found frames from them that I’ve honestly loved/thought worked for me. The Warby Parker frames are a pretty big jump for me (the bottom photo is my current pair of glasses), but I really want my next pair to be from them! Which (if any) pairs work best?

(In case you were wondering, Warby Parker is an absolutely amazing company. It’s online based, but they will send you 5 sample pairs to try on to your house for you to check out for five days for absolutely FREE. But more importantly, they are super cheap but high quality— $95 and that includes shipping and the prescription— AND they donate one pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair of glasses that they sell! So they’re just great.)

Anyways- obligatory question mark?

1 week until Scotland.

#summer2013

Hey remember that time I got a sewing machine for the sole purpose of creating cute clothes that fit me perfectly and then proceeded to make all of the clothes too small?

Yeah that was awesome so great.

"I’m not a feminist because I like wearing dresses.."

OH MY GOD I JUST CANNOT. PLEASE STOP.

The adjustment from living right  across the sidewalk from each other  to only having one phone call a day has been rough, but he’s worth it. 

That being said, I can’t wait until I can talk to Dylan whenever I want again. This summer can’t go by fast enough.

I just remembered what I was doing this time last year.

I’ve come so far. Thank God. 

AMCAS Thoughts

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). 

This is rough. This is so rough.

FIRST DAY OF SUMMER EMPLOYMENT TODAY!!!

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.

Anyway! GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT! YEAH!!!

Besides embryology (hate it so much), I managed to actually get good grades this semester. 

Sure, my GPA is not the best for applying to med school, but that’s only because of study abroad (and OChem II and embryology), which I think is a pretty good excuse, right? 

The semester is finally behind me and I did the best I could. Now, on to summer, the MCAT, and working.
