Greetings! And thanks for stopping by...
a little about me - I'm a thirtysomething nontraditional student pursuing a dream of becoming a doctor. This blog chronicles my journey as I try to pass Organic Chemistry, learn about research, volunteer my time, and do all the other things you need to do to get into medical school. (You know, in my -free- time.)
This whole crazy thing started in September 2010 when I was about 8 months from graduating with a bachelor's degree in Public Service... and then I was laid off from my job. After a month of moping (which is required according to the US DOL, I think) I woke up one morning and realized that I was now free to do whatever I wanted.
And what was that exactly? Well, I'd always been interested in science and medicine, so I started looking into medical careers... nurse, EMT, etc... but finally decided that if I was going to go for it... I might as well try to go all the way.
So I signed up for some pre-requisites and made an appointment with the pre-med adviser. The rest is chronicled here on the blog.
So welcome! I hope you find my tale interesting. I always welcome productive comments and helpful suggestions, and am always looking for interesting medical (or not so much) blogs to add to my reading list.
