I hope everyone is having a good week so far. As for me, its been depressing and just disappointing. Now, I know a few others who are in more difficult situations than I am (whether it be work, home or school) and so I would like to apologize if I’m whining but I just felt like venting and also because Cynth has asked me to post a blog, so here goes…
So, for the past few weeks I have been slacking off (studying) and am trying to focus once again on getting my stuff together and push forward (for lack of a better phrase). So, I have been applying for jobs and have not gotten any positive responses, lol . I also contacted my counselor at my University and wanted to set up an appointment with him/her so that I can get advice on how to proceed with Medical School after my MCAT but I haven’t gotten a response yet. Oh, they’re real quick to call you and bug you all day when you owe them money but when you need help…’I’m not at my desk at this moment but if you leave your name and number I’ll get back to you as soon as possible’, my ASS!
Oh, and another thing why does it seem that more than half of the advisors don’t really know how to advise?! Yea, someone who recommends that you take Organic Chemistry, Physics and Genetics all in one semester just so you can get it ‘out of the way ‘ obviously has never had a full science course load EVER! Did I mention that each class has a three hour laboratory session? Yea. Now, I’m not saying that a full science course load is impossible. I had Physics II, Biochemistry and Biomedical Ethics (and I took a Jane Austen Literature class just to change it up a bit!) in my final semester of college and I pulled through with A’s and B’s but I had no life. Actually, I didn’t have a life for four years, lol. Who the hell has time to enjoy campus life when you’ve got to study your ass off so that your GPA doesn’t fall and you don’t go on Academic probation and you don’t lose your scholarships and grants because you don’t have 10 grand to pay for one semester? Wow, try saying that all in one breath, lol. But I’m not going to cry over it, I would just be wasting my time. Instead I am going to keep on bugging the counselor until she calls and keep on looking for a job or I might just blow it all off for a year and teach somewhere (yea right!), lol. My little piece of advice for any college students is to speak with their professors and ask them for advice. Chances are that they also went through the same strenuous and difficult experiences and are better able to provide you with honest answers rather than guesses. I hardly ever went to my professors because I felt that I was bothering them…how pitiful am I?
Anyways, that’s about it. I just felt the need to get it all out of my system and I would rather blow up at my computer than take it out on someone who’s probably got their own mess to deal with and doesn’t need to hear mine. So, I sincerely hope everything turns out well not just for me but for everyone else who is in the same predicament or whose struggles are worse.
Kimchi kisses and ddeokbokki dreams!
