Ending the last week of this summer program is exciting, but scary. On one hand, I’m just excited to be in medical school and finally going to school for something I will actually use when I graduate. On the other hand, finishing this summer program means school will be starting, and I’ll be in actual, medical school…the real deal… which is kind of scary. Especially because I actually got a taste of just how much information I would be required to learn. Nonetheless, I’m grateful for this program because I had some time to “ease” into this process.

So…the last few days of the summer program were great. I actually learned some very BASIC suturing techniques. I actually like suturing! But I’m not sure how it will play out because I don’t want to have anything to do with surgery, thanks to nasty anatomy dissections, lol. Yes, clearly, my dislike for anatomy will be a topic of many blog posts. Hopefully at the end of anatomy, you will come to hate it too:). It’s like, I can’t figure out the anatomy when the body has no blood in it…How on earth do you see anything when blood is present? Weird. Anyway, I like suturing. We will see how far that gets me. I’ve posted a picture of my wonderful suturing skills, lol. It looks like crap, but I promise, the instructor said I did a good job. 🙂

My semester will begin with cell biology, biochemistry and statistics/epidemiology. Cell bio and biochem are 6 weeks I believe, and epi/stats is 3 weeks long. First exam is August 31st. I’ll keep you updated after my first week, and let you know if I have dropped out of school yet, lol. Until next time…
