    Im planning to see some friends up in NYC that I have neglected for a while since I was in a post-bac. I'm going to take a trip with my brothers to LA and San Fran. Hoping to still go on this trip to Ireland with my boyfriend. Spend some time in Pittsburgh where my boyfriend lives so that we can pretend that we have a normal relationship instead of the LD :p. Spend time with my family and possibly take our last family trip for a while. :(

    I'm going to become essentially worthless. Besides my ~15 hours/week or work and 8 hours/week of volunteering, I'm not going to do a damn thing. Nothing. I'll continue to work out as I do, but other than that, I'll be sitting on my *** watching TV and/or playing video games all day. I deserve it, dammit.

    I work full-time, but I'm taking a month off before school starts to see family and enjoy life and free time. Probably for the last time ever.

    I have submitted all of my students' grades for the semester so "bioteach" is no longer an accurate description of me. Now I sit back and wait for the flood of emails ("but I'm only 2 percentage points from a D" - got that one today) from disgruntled students.

    Other than that I'm going to be a housewife for the summer. Since we are trying to sell our house before moving for med school, its going to be a full time job keeping it showing quality clean. Ugh.

    What, you could fit "starting a family," "raising kids," and "attending son's graduation" into the beginning of August?

    Moving, starting a research project, and going to Baltimore/DC area for a week. I'm excited for school to start, but I'm going to miss out on a lot of fun family trips this year. Oh well, it will be worth it...right?

    working full-time until three weeks before school starts. Then getting married, and moving during those three weeks. I might go on a camping trip or just spend time with my family before school starts. Unfortunately, we can't afford an actual honeymoon, unless a family member decides to surprise us. I'm not holding my breath for that :(.

    Will be finishing up my job in July. Going on a two-week trip to Alaska (1 week land trip, 1 week cruise) with the family in mid-July. Nagging bf to go on a second trip (earlier one was to the Keys) in late July/early August.

    But, I will also be learning how to drive this summer. This is an ongoing project.

    That's me in a nutshell as well, although I'm going to move a few weeks in advance to avoid the stressful part.

    Um okay why is everyone getting married? This is concerning me to be attending med school pseudo-single. Also I'm not sure what I'm doing...actually would like an opinion should I:

    a) Do summer anatomy from June-August with a 2 week break before REG med school starts in august

    b) Do anatomy with everyone else and be a lazy pos, learn spanish and possibly take a trip?
