Checking in

So I haven't updated my journal in a while. Nothing has really changed, but I have to say I feel better and happier, though I'm not sure if I can pinpoint why. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth, right? Actually I can't stand that phrase, because my bitchy old grandmother said this to me in an infamous family reunion incident in which I refused her offer of the soap and shampoo bottles from our shared hotel room. Who offers someone complimentary items they could easily get themselves and gets offended over the refusal?

I live off campus in a real life apartment now, and I'm very happy with it, save for the fact that a particular Niceville cheerleader with matching first and last name initials whom I don't believe I will ever like lives next door and constantly plays the avert-eyes-don't-speak-I-don't-know-you game.

Still an aspiring med school student. The thing about this year (which I think is one of the reasons I feel happier) is that for the first time since I started college, I can genuinely click my heels and shout "SCIENCE IS FUN!" I'm past all my prereqs and everything is starting to become interrelated ad is really falling into place. I'm learning, I'm loving learning, and most important of all, I'm retaining what is being learned. It's good to feel like your curriculum (thank God Firefox spell check) is more than just a means to an end.

On that note, I'm starting in a lab working with bacteria suspected to cause Crohn's disease. The people are nice and relaxed and I'm enjoying myself so far, though at this point I'm only starting out.

I also volunteer at Orlando Regional Medical Center, doing the most awesome job ever: I'm up in would management, where the staff is struggling to go computerized. So I scan pictures of wounds into their computer. An inordinate amount of the wounds seem to involve assholes that are ripped or in some way inflamed or whatnot. Lots of asses.

I keep getting called for jury duty back in Okaloosa and it's getting on my nerves. I would love to do jury duty, but I'm not there and they know this. I hope they don't come and put me in the pokey because I just overnighted my jury excusal form today, but they should have received it on Monday. OOOOPS!

That's all for now I guess.
