    First and foremost, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

    Secondly, what are your news years resolutions?

    Mine are:

    Score a 1700 on the SAT, take the ACT early senior year.
    Finish up junior year with a strong GPA, and get as close to a 4.0 first semester of senior year, and apply to college.

    Get into the universities I want:
    Penn State-Upark
    Maryland-Upark
    Ohio State-Columbus
    Rutgers:NB
    University of Kentucky
    amongst others...

    Do more volunteer work and get a job. This way I have work experience, volunteer work, a good class rank, a high GPA, and a high SAT/ACT score.

    Possibly shadow some doctor's as well...

    My goal? Get into University of Kentucky pre med program.

    It is a lot of work but as long as I can get into these schools, I will be happy and will finally get to start the journey to becoming an M.D.
    ---
    Post your goals/dreams/aspirations for this new year of 2009!

    You know there's a thread for this in "Better than Facebook", right?

    Ah, well. Reposting:

    Wishes for 2009:

    :: A summer job that doesn't involve french-fries
    :: Sanity throughout my first semester in college
    :: Money to buy me food during my first semester at college
    :: A rich boyfriend who will buy food for me

    Those are some very nice resolutions.

    I'm planning on being more awesome then I already am. Which is going to be difficult. But in the words of Tennis (and possibly some other famous dude I can't remember) "Yes We Can."

    CScull, if I could have but a few ounces of your awesomeness, my life would reach absolute, utter perfection. I know it. Know why?

    'Cause I'm only a few ounces off anyway.

    Hmmm, but that just means I'll be less awesome than perfect. How about we split the difference and, while we won't be perfect, we'll still be waay awesomer than everyone else.

    Good save--that was a fairly awful joke.

    We'll split the awesomeness, right down the middle, then. Good plan. Very diplomatic-should medicine fail, you should go into politics!

    It's okay, at 1 in the morning anything's funny.

    I know it comes from parenting my sister and my mother. It takes a lot of skill though because I have to make sure they both think they're still in charge.

    Practice makes perfect right?

    We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no
    matter what obstacles stand in my way, nothing can withstand the
    power of millions of voices calling for change.

    We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics who will
    only grow louder and more dissonant in the weeks to come. We've been
    asked to pause for a reality check. We've been warned against
    offering the people of this nation false hope.

    But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been
    anything false about hope. For when we have faced down impossible
    odds; when we've been told that we're not ready, or that we shouldn't
    try, or that we can't, generations of Americans have responded with a
    simple creed that sums up the spirit of a people.

    Yes we can

    Getting 1 million dollars from lottery

    Yes we can

    Dating with Alizee, a french pop singer

    Yes we can

    Go to Local's house and make him sushi

    Yes we can

    Score 45 on MCAT

    Yes we can

    Be more famous than Miley Cyrus

    Yes we can

    CScull will be the most beautiful woman on the planet

    Nothing is impossible. So don't give up everyone ! ! !
    If you dream about it, you can do it !

    I love how you leave this last one on a sarcastic note.

    Don't worry, CScull. I'm sure that you are the second-most beautiful woman on the planet.

    Also, for anyone interested, my Medical Blooper of the Day calender as this story for Jan 1st:

    A doctor was listening to an elderly woman's lungs with his stethoscope. As he placed it on her back, he reminded her, "Big breaths, Kelly."

    The patient looked down at her chest and said mournfully, "Well, they used to be."


    I love this calendar already.

    Great idea! I probably won't remember to update it all the time, but still..

    One of my favorite threads (the one that originally led me to SDN, actually), is the "Things I Learn From My Patients" over in Emergency Medicine. This calendar reminds of that...

    I still giggle madly at the thread about the guy who farted during his med school interview.

    Someone suggested that he should have blamed it on the other person. Y'know:

    Student: *fart*

    Director: *stare*

    Student: It was you.

    This still makes me laugh.

    Also, parents? Should be institutionalized during any and all application processes. I swear, my mother was more emotional throughout this whole process than I was.

    I just get really excited. I swear when my sister started getting college aplication letters I was happier than she was...

    although there may have been other factors involved with that too...

    No, no, no--maybe I have two uteri and I have Mr. & Mrs. Steril's spawn in one and Local's sprog in the other?

    It could happen. I saw it on Grey's Anatomy. :D
