tran da best.
heh heh heh will you see this?
A year ago I starting studying for the mcats, which I took at the end of that summer. In hopes of getting a higher score, the studying of my mcats has reinitialized. I remember being extremely stressed and had the feeling that I had no time. The days that I needed to get some studying done went buy extremely fast and the days I needed to get A LOT of studying done seemed like god just decided to pull those days out in the week (i.e. i felt i did not have a chance to open my materials). Who could blame such horrible of having 0 time. With research, gym, dealing with house stuff, work, and MCATS, I guess I understand why I felt this way.
however, ITS A NEW SUMMER!! I only have MCATS, a small serving of work, and visits to see Bran Bgo (secret alias to retain confidentiality and secrecy for this specific person). Having a substantially amount more free time, I feel less stressed and more excited to dominate this test like Evan O’Dorney dominated the spelling bee.
Hopefully I have time to write more posts, too!
dude thats hilarious
When I think back to Summer ‘10, I am going to think that all I did was do gym and study mcats. It’s sad that people put so much effort into one test but receiving a good score is unfortunately absolutely necessary to weed out people from getting into med school. I wish there was an easier way.
Sometimes I wish people would choose their own paths for their lives instead of their parents choosing them. Too many Berkeley asian kids choose med school because it’s the desire for their parents. Their parents brainwash their kids to force them to choose becoming a doctor. When you dig to the root of their minds and ask “why do you want to be a doctor?” they can’t give an sufficient explanation that provides a genuine sense of helping people. I guess I’m just bitter about the competitiveness. Oh well.
Speaking med school i should get back to studying mquiz or whatever it’s called.
6 more days!
Ahhhhhhhhh (said with relief)… <— this is the feeling im starting to get…just a nice sense of relief. You know that feeling when you hold in your pee for days and finally let it all out once you’ve found a bathroom or secluded bush. Well that type of relief that I feel right now isn’t that good, but close. I’m beginning to look forward to take my test on friday the 13th of august and i feel i just need to keep practicing.
I can’t wait to go home.
Youtube is the best distractor. If I need to find a way to procrastinate or simply have nothing to do at all, I can always count on youtube.
Cool, time to sleep
OOOO yeaaa…..first post. I’m not sure how to organize this. I think it’s supposed to be somewhat unorganized right? I’m going to assume that. Here goes.
O boy, it’s going to be a long summer. What’s on the plate of daniel geri? Gym, Lab research, job, and mcat studying. Things just don’t get any easier. Lately, I’ve been feeling really stressed out about the amount of things I have to do. I wish I had more time to do…stuff I want to do! I want to go to the beach, I want to go down to LA to see my friends, I want to watch an occasional movie on Shattuck, I want to be a billionaire so freakin bad, I want to go down to LA to see my friends, I want to learn how to play the guitar, I want to take a hike, I want to sleep in til 3pm, I want to go down to LA to see my friends, and I just really want to do absolutely nothing when I feel like it. I feel really lucky to have tran be there for me when stress feels like kicking in and root me on when the momentum of a good day is in its presence. I wish I could give her 5x the amount of high fives I give her in one day. She’s awesome.
Speaking of tran and going down to la…tran and I are going down to la. The date we are planning to leave is the 16th of August and coming back on the 22nd. I can’t wait. Let me put this into perspective…imagine a small boy (maybe about 7 years old) walking down the sidewalk with a brand new shiny balloon. He has a smile on his face, ear to ear, and has a little pep in his step. Suddenly, however, a crazy homeless man comes out of the bushes and takes his needle he carries around in his pocket and pops the boy’s balloon! Now, take that emotion of the little boy, turn it 180 degrees, and multiply it by 5. That is how excited I am.
This leads to me to also think…would you have a million dollars but have no friends, or have a middle class income and have a group of friends you can rely on. Personally, I choose the latter. Especially after almost being done with college, I feel I’ve become more social, which in turn, makes me a happier person. I think I would be pretty miserable with no social interaction. Especially with my summer schedule, I am beginning to get a small taste of the “typical Berkeley student” (typical Berkeley student - one who experiences <2 % of sunlight…ie does not go out and socialize).
Ok, I will try and write again. Thanks Allen for the inspiration!
