The Countdown Begins..

Well, the countdown has already begun. 31 days until my MCAT, 53 days until the Patch Adams Medical Elective, and 146 days until I leave for the Peace Corps. Although that may sound like a lot of time to some of you, it is beginning to feel like a huge time crunch to me!

As some of you may know, I am a bit OCD at times, and I often try to do too many things at once. I am currently trying to find a way to strike a balance between finding time to cross things off my to do list, visiting loved ones, studying for my test, and making enough money to allow me to do all the things I want to do. No one is kidding when they say being a grown up is hard!

I will be moving away from Fort Collins this month and I didn't realize how difficult it will actually be to leave this beautiful town. It's always a weird feeling to close a chapter in life -my time at CSU is something I will always cherish. Although, I must excitedly admit that I am so lucky to have much, much more in front of me.

Sometimes I feel as though I am wasting away studying. (I do truly hope some of it sinks in...) During my studies today, I found a rather hilarious piece of writing that I thought I might share with you.

I feel like a lot of my reading for the MCAT looks like that anyway... ! Thanks to good ole Kaplan, they taught me how to pick out the main points of the writing sample. Makes me stop to think about what's really important in my own life, and what is just filling up space.

Love & Light,

  1. Often when I read text books that's all I understand anyways. In fact, its all BLAH BLAH BLAH! haha.

    Although countdowns may be stressful as they make you realize how much time you don't have, they help organize and make sure you get things done. I approve! Lesson learned though, love life today, don't just wait for the next thing. Once you are there you will another timeline and if you just keep waiting, life will pass you by! 142 days until you leave for the corp, make sure you enjoy each and every one!
