I can’t believe it’s been a whole month since I last had a blog post up. Like I said in my last post, life has just been getting way too real, too fast.
It’s like I’ve been doing a running start for the pool and now it’s getting close to the point where I’m forced to jump in and I don’t know if I’m going to swim, sink or just float in place. The pit at the bottom of my stomach is steadily growing as deadlines approach: MCAT test day, graduation, applying for grad school/jobs.
Interestingly enough, I saw an acquaintance at work the other day and remembered the fact that he was a senior while I was a freshman and now, I’m the senior getting ready to graduate. Maybe interesting wasn’t the word for that scenario; frightening is the better choice.
As much as I’ve been trying to post more this summer, I’ve been sooo failing at that. Senior year is coming up right around the corner and life is getting way too real. Honestly, I wish I could start college all over again. Most people don’t realize it, but it’s a safety net. There are so many things you get away with!
So here’s what I’m doing this summer:
Working in a research lab
Taking Organic Chemistry + Lab (which I surprisingly like)
Studying for the MCAT
Researching post-grad options before applying to medical school
Hostessing at a restaurant (because DC rent is too damn high)
Prepping for a blog re-brand
Trying as hard as I can to not just forget it all, buy a one-way ticket to Paris and never look back.
Can you believe we’re already halfway done with 2015? It seems like just yesterday I was making my Goals for 2015 post. Speaking of, I decided to dedicate this post with checking in on the goals that I made for this year.
