I love that my blog is lame right now. I've been too damn busy living my life to spend much time writing about it. Here's a quick recap on the major items:
The Medical School Process:
Applying to medical school is excruciating and time-consuming. But I've survived thus far.
My interview in Denver went well, but I won't hear back until Mar 31.
The schools I'm still waiting to hear from are not likely to give me an interview at this point. Oh, well.
Of course, I'm ready to travel if they contact me.
Level 1 certified as of Aug 23, 2009.
I did 150 pull-ups as part of my workout on Saturday and did not tear my hands open. :)
I've set a slew of new PRs in the past few weeks.
Love Paleo cooking. See susanoutdoors.blogspot.com for my recipes!
I want to buy a garage gym setup so that I can do the WODs out of my house when I'm in medical school and don't have time to drive to a gym. I will not give up my workouts.
Three classes this semester: Bacteriology, Biomechanics, and Physical Chemistry lab.
I'm only in class Tuesday & Thursday, so I have more days off to work at the hospital.
I will graduate May 21 summa cum laude with a B.S. in Human Biology, a B.A. in Chemistry, and a Theatre Minor.
I quit my job dancing at the Caspian at the end of November.
I'm not teaching dance classes on campus this semester, either.
Working as a Scribe in the Emergency Department absolutely rocks. I learn tons with every shift.
Coolest thing I've seen at work: a completely occluded abdominal aorta. I didn't even know that was possible with a conscious patient.
Since I've started eating Paleo again, my RA flare ups have gone down. I love this.
Yes, that means I've given up beer again. :(
Coffee on an empty stomach makes my hands shake, but so does an excruciating CrossFit workout.
I've started a separate blog for my Paleo cooking and CrossFit workout posts. Posting my recipes helps keep me focused and motivated. Plus, I get my ideas from random websites just like the one I started. Maybe I can help someone else, too.
