I've had some stuff going on health-wise which is why I haven't posted yet. I promise it's coming, I just really need to get this all sorted out first. To complicate matters, I have new health insurance through school and here was a mix up with my paperwork so I don't have a contract or insurance card yet meaning I can't go see a doctor yet. I'm 90% sure I know what's going on, that it's a flare up of an old issue, but I need the meds for it and I can't fill a prescription without proof of health insurance or without a prescription.

I haven't had a lot of energy because of what's been going on and the pain has gotten to the point where I'm struggling to focus in class, so you can imagine how that affects my time to write when I have to go over my lectures multiple times because I can't focus. It hit me out of nowhere. I'm sorry for getting everyone's hopes up.

That being said, I got through my first set of midterms and  passed all of them, I even got scores high enough to qualify for honors on two of them. I'm really enjoying medical school so far, I think it suits me a lot. I haven't felt so laid back in my life and I know medical school is usually high stress but for me it's had the opposite effect. I'm having a really good experience and even though I miss my friends and my dad from back home, I'm glad I chose the school I did and I'm happy to be where I am right now. I will say that the classes I'm taking now are a tad boring and technical but once this semester is over we finally start to get taking classes that are more based on clinical skills, diagnosis, and disease states. I've been waiting for those classes for six years. I'm ready for them.

I know that a lot of my readers think I'm delusional for thinking I'll be able to write while in medical school but the fact that I have a master's degree in anatomy eases my course load tremendously, I'm also not working or volunteering, so, really, medical school has actually been less packed than my schedule as a pre-med student and a graduate student. I recognize the irony of saying this when I haven't been able to post but the reason is because of my health, not medical school. Even if I wasn't in medical school I doubt I'd have the energy to write with what's going on. I'm not completely unrealistic, though, I will be ending the blog before I start my clinical rotations. I want to give the blog the send off it deserves and I intend to do that in time.

Modern Day Faith will resume sometime in August.

I'm currently in the midst of organizing a cross-country move, phasing out of my jobs and volunteer positions, and packing.

Have a happy fourth of July, ya'll!

I'm alive (and so is the blog), I've just had a whirlwind of things happen the past few weeks.

I defended my thesis, and passed. I published my thesis and another publication. I graduated with my master's degree. And I decided to move out of state for medical school after getting four acceptances.

I will be moving sometime in July and I'm really excited.

The cats got matching graduation outfits because why not?

Right now I'm trying to figure some things out (I have a lot of other stuff going on) but I hope to get back to posting soon.

New Post and a Note From The Author

During the time that I've written this blog, I've never really been all that involved in the comments on my posts. I read every comment written on this blog, usually I stay neutral or like to make a funny comment if I say anything at all. I do this because I really don't mind if people express their opinions, whatever they may be, about my writing or the blog. That being said, I do not appreciate being called a liar, especially by people who know nothing about my life.

New Leaves

I found myself sitting in the squishy leather chair with a feeling of resignation.

Smash

I sat across from Sean in my living room. He was sitting on my couch and I was sitting on my coffee table. Our talk wasn’t going well.
