The Idea:

I’m going to medical school. Hopefully. At this point, I don’t actually know that I’m going to medical school, but since I am a decently strong applicant and tried hard not to do stupid things that will count against me (like writing a truthful weblog that details my jaded experience with admissions in open internet space allowing anyone with decent search skills and a job as an admissions committee member to read it), I am fairly certain that I will enter school in 2008. Of course that kid in the middle of the soccer field during the lightning storm holding up his school flag was fairly certain he wasn’t going to get struck by lightning and then BONGO! he got herpes, so you never know. Assuming I do make it into medical school, I plan to use this weblog to document what happens, what doesn’t happen but I imagine happens, and any other thoughts moderately related to medicine that I deem worthy, like motorcycles or tattoos. So without further adieu, here we go. Oh actually just a few further adieus. I plan to keep this truthful but I promise I will exaggerate at some point, so don’t be that douche that’s like, wait a foley catheter couldn’t possibly be that big, yarr!(you know, because you are a pirate douche). I also mean the best of intentions. So if I come off like a dick, know that in practice I am working very hard towards the greater good before you call your lawyer.

Well thanks, that's quite a feat, considering how much gibberish is on here. I hope you enjoyed at least some of it.

I did! Thank you for the entertainment :) And sorry about the deleted comments..my boyfriend really needs to start logging out of his gmail account..and maybe I should start previewing my posts before I submit them =/

Only mildly confusing, but I figured it out. Thanks for joining the very small party and I will have more. Any suggestions? I've been pretty stagnant for about, oh 4 years now.

I'm a pre-med student so I enjoy all of your posts about the application process to med school/med school itself/etc. I found your link through your Ruminations profile. Great stuff--keep up the good work..in your enormous amounts of free time ;)

Well good luck. It's a long road but totally worth it. And you have more free time than you think. Just look for the months where I have a bunch of posts, those months are full of free time. Actually my first year and a half was a lot of free time as will be my 4th year.

I have tons of med school stuff just brewing, I just have to finish it. If you have anything specific you want to hear about, I'm happy to try.

Thank you..I still have another year left before I even start applying so I have barely even scratched the surface of things to come. I am so nervous about the application process and even getting in--let alone medical school itself! It's nice to read your humor about it and lighten the anxiety a bit :)
