    I only have to take 4 classes this semester. But I have to choose what I think will be the best Bio class for me tomorrow. There's no way of finding out without going to all of them.

    19 hours? :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
    Yeah, right. I haven't taken any more than 15.

    I know - it's going to be rough to get through it. At least it's only for 1 day. Too bad it starts in less than 7 hours... :scared:

    Don't do it. Pointless.

    Enjoy your last semester - live it up. There's never going to be another undergrad.

    I'll never get to sleep tonight. I didn't wake up until 10:30 this morning and then accidentally fell asleep for an hour around 5pm.

    I want a personal trainer. And I want someone to make me stop eating when I need to even if I'm stressed. I was way stressed last night and ate waaaaayyy too much. At least I worked off a bit of it at the gym, but I still feel terrible about it. I need more self-control. :(

    Say what?! :eek: Care to tell more?

    I totally understand! Personal trainers make me accountable to my workout schedule. Also, you should check this website out: www.fitday.com. This website helps me hold myself accountable to my diet. You can setup your own (free) diet/exercise log and fitness/weight loss goals, and it will tell you how many calories you can eat per day and will keep track of your calorie intake and how many calories you burn with exercise. I just discovered it, and it's pretty awesome.

    well, christian got this patient that had scars on his neck because he tried to hang himself to cut off blood to the head so he can have a more pleasurably intimate moment with himself. so christian tried to do that but he just blacked out from choking. after he wakes up he realizes he's not good enough for kimber or thats what he says so he dumps her. and then kimber goes on mario lopez boat. well and then someone jumps.

    Ha I ate like half a bag of chips last night :p

    It's a continuum. As long as you're good most of the time, you don't have to feel bad about your couple of indulgences. :) What could be so stressful just 3 days into the semester, though?

    lol, totally missed that.

    Hey guys.

    A really good strategy I usually follow is just to not buy unhealthy-ish stuff so it's not tempting. I feel like I can eat whatever I want in my apartment because it's all relatively healthy.

    You know, my trainer suggested something really handy to me last night: shop on the "outside" of the grocery store, meaning that all the good stuff for you lines the outer circle of the store (produce, meat, dairy, etc.).

    That's not a bad suggestion. Although that implies doing real cooking every night, so that's a bit of a stretch for me (at least to shop only in that area). I'm also a pretty big Costco fan, which can be dangerous if you are trying to buy healthy food only. It's do-able, though.

    haha unfortunately no. they're just on the bottom though luckily. my orthodontist/neighbor decided they were gonna be my graduation present cuz he was mad they moved since i got my braces off in high school lol... so it's pretty awesome that he's doing it for free:) and i should hopefully get them off in a couple months before med school starts.

    Wooo healthy food talk! I ate a whole bag of kettle popcorn in 1 day. Not the kind you pop in the microwave. NO the big bags that are like a bag of Chips. SO GOOD!

    To make up for it, today I had carrots and hummus for breakfast. XD

    Also: I got an interview invite from Rosalind Franklin today. I'm thinking I should withdraw.... What do you guys think?

    EDIT: What's that hope list for?

    Morning everyone!

    On Rosalind Franklin, I was so turned off by the A/B/C/D/F grading system that I didn't apply.

    Maybe that's less of a concern to you though.

    yumm ketttle corn! and hummus too, i love hummus w cucumbers and orange peppers.



    do you think you'd like rosalind franklin better than any of the schools you're already accepted at? if not, i'd withdraw.


    the hope list is the one school we'd love to get into the rest of the cycle. we made a list so we can send everyone positive vibes for their school! or if you're like ksmi and already in everywhere you want to be, you can just wish for $ from a particular school.

    Yep, the hope list was created basically as the one (or two) things you're really hoping for right now in the application season. For instance, I am really hoping to get into Vanderbilt. The point of this list is so that we can send positive thoughts to others and hope they also get what they want!
