    So for some of us will be the deciding year, those acceptances/rejections should start pouring in soon, for others this will be the year to take the beast, the MCAT, so how are fellow premeds ringing in 09?

    I fall into the latter category my friend. I take the MCAT at the end of May and already I feel overwhelmed. I've been studying everyday since my break started because I know I will be limited next semester although I did arrange my schedule to the point where I can set aside blocks of time to study every week.

    This is gunna be an interesting semester, last semester was my busiest, this will be my most stressful. Whatayaa gunna do? Economy is going south, news is bad, just gotta take it all one day at a time. At least my VR score on all my practice tests is 13+ so maybe I won't have to focus as much on it and things will be a little easier.

    I'm going back to school to celebrate it

    Actually I'm going back to pickup my berkeley review books which just got shipped there

    This is the first time in my life that my parents have told me I need to "get out" more. I almost feel into a deep depression over it :eek::eek::eek:

    Here are my plans and yes I am excited about all of them:

    1. Help my brother's GF move.
    2. Right after the move. Head down to the beach to go on a pseudo booze cruise with a lady friend.
    3. Make said lady friend love me.
    4. Have a good NYE with said lady friend.
    5. Convince said lady friend that Northwestern isn't really that cold.
    6. Pass out because this year has been tiring.

    I'm with the fam for the holidays, so...getting blind drunk. Yup. There's nothing like a nice, thick layer of vodka to shield you from your family's insanity.

    Haha that was my Christmas. But I'm going to my buddies who's having a big cookout for all of our high school friends, followed by a party in which I hope to still be coherent enough to see the ball drop.

    Well, I think I have the best plan for bringing in the New Year.

    Check this out-

    In two hours I am getting all four of my wisdom teeth extracted.

    Immediately after that I am making my parents stop by the pharmacy to get me some sweet pain pills.

    Then for the next two to three days I am going to sit on my couch and pop pain pills while I watch all the episodes of House I DVRed over the last few days. It is going to be sweet.:D
