I’ve been slacking on my Thankful Tuesday Tea Thyme updates, but don’t worry; I’m still striving to maintain a positive outlook..even on crappy days when I just want to curl under the blanket and stare at Matt Bomer’s dreamy blue eyes while having a marathon of “White Collar”. Check out the first Tea Thyme Tuesday. If I were to have tea with you today, I would like to share with you this awesome DIY project I just finished. I’m really proud of it, mainly because I seriously don’t have a creative bone in my body. And this came out better than I thought it would. Who says science nerds can’t be creative too? 😛
Secondly, I’m finally getting around to reading my long list of books I’ve neglected to read since the last Harry Potter came out. Being a premed, I didn’t have time to read anything besides my organic textbook and the required research paper reading for the lab meeting. So I’m really excited to pick up a book that has nothing to do with molecular genetics and other scientific mumbo jumbo. Though I have to say I’ve been really enjoying reading “The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer” by Sidhartha Mukerjee. It’s well written, and a beautiful read. I recently finished the “Millenium Trilogy” and I am currently reading “The Handmaids Tale” by Margaret Atwood. If you have any book recommendations, I would love to hear them. I’m always looking for a good read.
Lastly, I am really nervous for this upcoming medical school interview this Thursday. I don’t feel as prepared and I’ve become complacent since I know I have a backup. But I really want it to go well. I can’t wait for it to be over. On a more positive note, this school is in the same area where one of my best friend lives, so I’m excited I get to see her after six months. She was my roommate in college for 3 years, and I’m really happy for our little reunion. It’s going to be a great weekend, but I just have to get through this intimidating interview.
Alright, I’m off to prep for this interview. Gotta go google the latest on HMOs and the Affordable Care Act and other interesting facts to make the interviewers love me. Have a good rest of the week! 🙂
