Any suggestions on how to spend this time? I've heard things from take a physiology/anatomy class, pottery class, or work in a dental office/lab. I rather not do anything related to dentistry until school starts. Anyone planning on backpacking Europe or something? I've been bored since August (after taking the DAT), but at least I had to go to interviews and worry about something. Now, I feel useless to this world. :laugh:

I just graduated from college in June. I pretty much took the DAT in the summer and turned in my applications, expecting this to be year long process like undergrad. However, I got into my top choice recently, and I got all this time to blow until July. I was thinking about a screw-around job like starbucks or borders, but I rather not be living at home with the parentals. Its been a tough 6 months. I got 6 months to kill. Anyone in a similar situation?

Work out. Watch tv. Sleep. Play sports. Play video games. Go to a bar. Take trips. Read non-science stuff. Eat home cooked meals. Go to a lounge. Take a nap. Talk on the phone. Spend time on SDN. Go clubbing. Drive around the streets. Hang out with friends. Enjoy your free time.

Heh... yeah I've felt pretty useless since I graduated over the summer. It's been almost 4 months and I haven't done jack. :D I sure hope I get into dental school somewhere, otherwise, I'm probably going to have to get a job. :smuggrin:

I'm in the exact same situation as you, and it is pretty sweet. I'm not too sure what i am gonna do. I need to find a really slack job that pays really well and then go on a trip for a few months. Or maybe I might just take out a personal loan, nix the whole job thing, and then go on a nice long trip. Might as well enjoy it while i can.

I need to get off SDN. I think I spent the last 4 hours refreshing to see new posts. Yeah my friends are lame. They got "jobs" working 9-5 and go to bed at 10. What's up with that?!?


I've been working out myself. Trying to get rid of those damn college dorm lovehundles. Isn't it going to come back once school starts. One word that describes me is lazy :laugh:

Good to know I'm not alone. Any trip destinations? I'm checking out STA Travel and got some cool ideas to blend into another culture. I'd like to live in Spain for a few months...maybe a flat on top of bar. That would be sweet! Too bad, I don't have any money and I don't know too many jobs who will hire for a 1.5-2 months for some quick pocket money.

Enjoy your free time. Who knows when you'll get it again with dental school. :rolleyes:

I vote for Europe. If it weren't for the rest of my classes, I'd be on a plane after New Years. :p

Europe is sweet. Does anyone know how the weather there between February to May? Maybe I should do Chile, Argentina, and Brazil...its summer over there!

Everyone needs a hobby, why not take up drinking and/or recreational drugs. Good clean fun is over-rated.
