wow it has been a really long time since I have been on here, almost 4 1/2 months. That is inexcusable. But considering no one really reads this besides maybe my sister in law, its not that big of a deal. I like blogging to get stuff of my chest and to just put my thoughts somewhere besides my head. It can get pretty crowded up there.
Classes start tomorrow for spring semester. It feels like this break would never end so I am kinda glad that I will be busy again. But I am also really stressed and worried and the semester hasn't even started. I have to admit that I am not the best student in the world. I get Cs and Bs and the occasional D. But lately I have been thinking about grad school and how on earth I am going to be admitted. It is so competitive and even to just be considered you have to have at least a 2.7 gpa and needless to say I have never had that my entire collegiate career. So what is going to set me apart from all the other applicants? I know that I have to do my observational hours and I want to go above and beyond the minimum hours and I want to start doing volunteer work. I was thinking about becoming a Big Sister, but I don't know how I am going to raise my gpa, volunteer, observational hours, work and have somewhat of a social life on top of that. Thanks for letting me vent.
I am excited for this semester to start contrary to what I said above. But I think the classes I am taking are really interesting, Exercise Physiology, elementary microbiology, abnormal psychology, and physics.
I started my observational hours last week. I went to a Physical Therapists office and watched a PT for a couple hours. It was really interesting and informational. I scheduled time to observe her for a couple hours every week and I think it will be fun.
My new roommate moved in last night. She is an exchange student from Tokyo, Japan. She speaks really good english but she has a thick accent so I have to listen to her really well. I haven't gotten a chance to really talk to her. I waiting till she gets all unpacked and settled before I pounce. But she seems really sweet and nice. This is definitely going to be an experience and I promise to keep you informed.
Well I guess thats about it for now. Oh yeah, less than three weeks till my 21st bday! (not that im excited or anything :) )
