How’s your day treating ya? Mine started with a bowl of oatmeal before heading to the gym for a quick bicep/ chest workout. I had to skip the running today because I’ve been dealing with some pretty sharp heel pain that won’t budge. Usually I can ignore it and it actually feels better after a few minutes of activity, but today it hurts with even the slightest bit of pressure. No bueno.
Plans for the Year
Indulge me for a second and pretend that you care what I’m doing this year, now that I’ve graduated. If you’ve been reading for awhile, you know that I’m the most indecisive person EVER and have been feeling completely lost/ confused about my plans for next year (click the hyperlink for a post about that). While those feelings haven’t completely subsided, I do know what I’ll be doing for the next year and have a general life direction plan, although not a definite path. (But does anyone?)
So in the fall, I will be attending Thomas Jefferson University for a one year post- bac program. Sometime during January (or December?) I applied to Jefferson’s program, got called in for an interview, got accepted soon after the interview, and then stopped filling out my other applications because I knew that Jefferson is the place for me.
If you’re like 99.9% of everyone, you have no clue what the is. The program that I’m doing is a one year program in which I will take all of the classes (plus a few extra) needed in order to gain entry in medical school. Calm down, I’m not even completely sure that that’s the plan right now. The thing I love about Jefferson’s program is that it prepares for a number of healthcare professions, so my options are more open than, say, Temple’s program. I am planning to use this year as a time to really, really explore what I do and do not like and hopefully find a path that is right for me, whatever that may be.
It’s super scary starting something new, especially with no concrete direction, but it’s also exciting to think about being in a new environment, taking whole new classes, meeting a lot of new friends, and getting to be a city girl.
Well, kind of. I’ll be a city girl while I’m AT school, but I’ll be living at home this year with the good ol’ parents! It’s like high school again (haha— send help.) Actually, on that note- I’m in the market for FRIENDS at home. No need to apply…I’ll take anyone
Anyway, I have orientation late next week and then I start classes the following week (eek!). I’ve been previewing the material for each of the courses for the last few weeks to prepare for what’s to come. Let’s just say physics might be the death of me. Don’t worry, I’ll keep you posted.
Here’s to a new chapter!
